Oh, Baby, It’s

Magpie said something today that reminded me of a picture I had taken a few months back and had mentally filed away for posting when the temperatures rose above 100 110.

Of course I had to bust the lock on that mental file cabinet in order to pry it out, but here it is. The poor cactus is so cold it’s turning purple!

    I love this shot! I have always wanted to get a good photo of snow on a cactus. There’s just something about the juxtaposition that fascinates me. Great job, Tracy!
    PS Thanks for the dip in the pool. We needed it. πŸ™‚

  9. Wow, that looks crazy. You wouldn’t think that a cactus could feel a change in temperature so strongly, would you? Great post!
