As promised, the Argentine Giant Cactus flowers. They opened last night and were still open at about 10AM before starting to fade away. This cactus isn’t done yet - there is another flower bud coming for sure and maybe more. Click on the image to enlarge.
We thought that these Argentine Giant cactus flower pods would have opened this evening, but we’re still about a day away from enjoying the flowers for a brief time. They will open and stay open overnight but they will start to fade the morning after. It’s only a brief window, but I am planning to get some good photos of them and will post them here very soon.

This is my little thimble cactus with lots of tiny flowers. One of these days, I may put it in a bigger pot so it can grow some more. Click on the image to enlarge.
Spring is such a great time of the year in Arizona and at our house, in particular. We took a little walk today up the road and I took some pictures of flowers along the way. This little slideshow starts with a pink beavertail cactus flower, followed by a yellow prickly pear cactus flower and, finally, flower pods on a mesquite tree with bees. Roll your mouse over the slideshow to pause on an image. Roll out to continue playing.
Verna and I were at our favorite Mexican restaurant today enjoying a late lunch. As we sat by the window in the restaurant, several classic old cars came up the street. When we finished lunch, we were delighted to see several of those cars parked in the lot outside. I took an image pair of the classic Lincoln V-12 and merged them into the anaglyph image seen above.
Even though we roll out the grill no matter what the weather is, we are glad to see warmer temperatures for weekend grilling. Yesterday (and today) saw temperatures in the 80’s and blue skies.
This is me smiling for Verna’s camera and posing with my usual BBQ tools; tongs, stopwatch, mitts and (in the background) a Samuel Adams beer. Click on the image to enlarge.
We were at the dog park a couple of days ago. I did my usual dip in the little tub that Mama filled up for me. We had a good outing at the dog park with three laps around the park perimeter instead of the normal two. We were all tired and had good naps afterwards. Click on the image to make me big.
