PHOTO FRIDAY



This is a succulant that is no bigger than a slightly thick pencil...look at the piping...(Nature is simply amazing)....and you can see where clothing designers get their ideas...and check out those teeny tiny flowers, too....

I'm not a Photo Friday Regular but I haven't had time to do a nice long post, so...I hope you enjoy this....

BTW - I had to tell you... You've inspired me to start buying cacti again. Picked up a Echinocactus grusonii measuring about 3" across a few days ago. My first cactus in years. Now to make it flower..... [grin]

I love that photo. I just wish I could grow succulents here in the frozen tundra. Maybe indoors, if it were ever warm enough indoors. And sunny enough. Oh, never mind!

Here from Michele, Naomi and now I'm going to see Mr Sweetie's site. He's such a good helper!

That is cool. I don't know much about plants, but I sure like to marvel at them. I heard some one say that plants are where he gets his spirituality. He thinks to himself, "Ya know, I can't make that from scratch, and I don't know anyone who can."

Works for me!

Nice shot. Yes you're truly right about how amazing nature is. It made me think of buying some this weekend and start collecting them again. I used to have them years ago but had to give them away when we did some renovations in the garden.

I love so much the succulent!
They are a great survival here in my garden surrounded by a lot of hungry ants! LOL!
Beautiful photo, Naomi!

Have a great weekend and enjoy Josh Groban's DVD!

This is art. Seriously, I hope you see fit to get this printed up nice and bit (at least 11x18), framed, and mounted in a happy place in your home.

And if you're taking orders, make a few extra copies for the rest of us. I'm sure everyone here would display it with pride.

Are you sure you haven't done this professionally?

I love cacti, especially the "non-needle-sticky" kind. While I have seen a few growing around here, it was always to humid and damp in Mississippi for them. There they had to be indoor plants, small and cared for with benign neglect.

I have some succulents in the garden, but on my walks here in Albany, Oregon; believe it or not I have seen beautiful cactus (large and small) in bloom (in warmer weather)in some gardens here. I have wanted to go and knock on their doors to see how they get them to look so nice and to actually to bloom in our rainy Oregon weather. You would think they would rot. I take it they must use sand or something to make sure that the water drains at the roots and when it freezes here, they must cover them in some way. I will have to find out! On one of my walks I will have to gather pictures and some information. Lovely picture Naomi! And as usual after I have been away awhile; to catch myself back up on your Blog postings I have to find my dratted reading glasses, now where did I leave them? LOL!

Delicious. Really. The forms in nature are there for us all the time. We just have to see them and report back. That's what makes us human. The opposable thumb ain't nothin' but vanilli.

Coming here from Michele's this time :)

Your photos of plants are always so wonderful, especially to someone such as myself who seems to have the world's worst brown thumb. I sincerely can't get the hang of keeping plants! But you make them look so beautiful :) Thanks!
