My 1st Cactus Monday

My cactus art is taking photos of my cactus or succulents so people can see just how beautiful and different they really are. The picture above is of a new pad developing on my opuntia santa-rita.

This pot of graphed cactus was put together by my kids for Mother's day. They knew what I loved and used there imagination. That is great art to me.

Lastly for this Monday is the center of a beautiful mammillaria cactus. The spiral of red needles forming in the center is so interesting. That is it for this Monday. Enjoy!

Welcome to Cactus Monday!! I can see you love cacti as much as the rest of us. Your art of photography is perfect and beautiful. I am adding you to my member list.

I noticed that my Prickly Pear is doing the same thing in it's new growth. So interesting.

I LOVE the cactus your children created. Beautiful.

And yes, succulents are more than acceptable, they are cacti's first cousin and many people use them.

Happy Cactus Monday or ❤HCM❤ as we like to say.

Hi Candy! WOW! That top photo is so neat! I have not seen a Santa Rita in that color before where it is just coming out! Gorgeous!!!

Love that pot of Moon cactus your kids made for you...the shadows you captured really make it lovely!

Happy 1st Cactus Monday. Glad you found Teri's Mr. Linky, and looking forward to more Mondays ahead!
