More To Come.......
NOTE: Hoping to get to The Ehling Tile House on Sunday. If everyone's health holds up, etc., I will be taking pictures of everything I haven't seen and you all will be the first to know about it, to be sure....!
Magnificent photos of such magnificent flowers!
I have made a special effort to come and visit you during my lunch break at work! Shhhh... don't tell! LoL!
As ever beautiful photos Naomi - in this post and of your flowers in the previous post that I couldn't help but stare at!
I love cactus flowers, probably becasue they are so delicate nad surprising given their appearance when they are not in flower. Such beauty from such prickly things! My favourite photo is the sixth one down. I just love the water droplets on the petals :)
Just what I needed. I miss the desert.
Cactus flowers are certainly wonderful!! fantastic shots as always, my dear.
Gorgeous flowers, Naomi!
Cactus flowers are my preferred! Love all them.
You took fantastic photos as always, Naomi! We can see the dew on petals...breathtaking!
Have a nice week ahead!
Fabulous -- as always!
Gorgeous, as usual.
Mr. k wanted me to tell you he saw "On the Town" again yesterday morning and he can't stop talking about Betty (how good she was, how pretty her legs were, that she wasn't touted as a sex symbol - but had a gorgeous body.) I guess it's a good thing I met him first! LOL
Wow I had no idea that there were one day flowers!
What amazing shots, as always. Love the way the sun highlights the colours so beautifully.
The middle of the Lambii's looks like it would taste good.
Super cool about going to the tile house! I really hope everything works out this Sunday! :)
Oh they are so pretty to look at Naomi and the euphorbia Lambii (green), from far it looks as if there are tiny bugs resting on each individual flower....so gorgeous :D
the eye of the artist always shines through!
it's such a special time when nature brings it's blossoms isn't it?!
Beautiful photo's.. I Love the colors... I love this time of year where all the colors are out and just popping up.. We are plannign on doing something like that with our front yard but not sure yet.. Will post it when we are finished..
Love that last shot! The vivid colors of the flowers juxtaposed against the spines of the cactus on the left and the smoothness of the stones on the right. Very nice. I also love the one near the top, pale pink, with all the dewdrops on it.
I am still putting in the flowerbeds in the back of our house and I just purchased an Euphorbia to add.. it is a rich reddish green color and will go wonderfully with the Concord bayberry.
Isn't it such a pity that those lovely delicate petals are only around for one day...sigh.
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous is right! I had never even heard of one day flowers until you mentioned them in a previous post. I would love to see them up close! I'm glad I was able to catch these beauties today before they close up again!
PS - I want to thank you for the beautiful gift, my friend! You've made my day!! :)
Beautiful shots. I just love cactus flowers. They look almost other worldly.
Honestly, it's my first to see photos of beautiful cactus flowers and of different variety too!
Have a nice weekend Naomi!
I just shared these lovely photos with my seven year old grandson Noah who is seven.. We're having a sleepover and now he's going to try to draw the flowers for his journal.
thanks for the lovely ideas...

Hi Naomi!! The blooms are so very lovely. What a shame some only last one day, but that makes them extra special too!
There is a song, "Who I Was Born to Be", on Susan Boyle's DVD (written by Audra Mae), and I LOVE the song, and the last verse is this
"When I was a child
There were flowers that bloomed in the night
Unafraid to take in the light
Unashamed to have braved the dark"
These words made me think of your flowers and of you!!
How exciting that you will get to meet the tile master himself!! I'm looking forward to that -- I mean what you will share with us!! I know you'll enjoy your visit!! What fun!!
Love and hugs,
My eyes are not good right now, but what beauty from the desert!
Alas, our climate is too cold for cacti.
They are so unusual with such lucious flowers in contrast to the arid green - do you credit
Very Beautiful. A walk around your garden could get you into a very nice frame of mind!
