Prickly Love and Some Thoughts



First, I really enjoy the prickly pear cacti in my neighborhood – that is, as long as I don’t fall into a patch.  Their paddle-shaped stems (the thorns are the leaves) often show up heart-shaped, and in season bear beautiful flowers which become the pear.  After all our rains, I can hardly wait to see what the trails nearby have to offer.

Thoughts:  Fraggie suggested a weekly post on the monthly subject.  I will give it a shot for every Monday.  That I think I can do without feeling depressed about my project and without feeling pressure from lack of time.  My workday yesterday was out of the house at 8:00 a.m. and home at 7:30 p.m.  I think you can see why time is not always available!

    1. Ouchy, indeed! These are really obvious thorns – but others are really soft looking, and if you rub up against them, you are very unhappy.

    1. Thanks, Eduardo. If I were really hungry, I could eat the whole cactus! I’ve had nopales mixed in with scrambled eggs, and the pears, too. Tuna, eh? I like that word!
