The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Spring Blooms in the Desert

A small fishhook cactus with tiny blossoms.  
These flowers are about the size of an eraser on the end of a pencil.


  1. I am always surprised a cactus has such beautiful bright flowers.

  2. Aren't cactus blooms fascinating, John? Such delicate flowers among all the thorns.

  3. I'm glad you told the size--when I first saw them I pictured them being really big.

  4. Beautiful little plants... well spotted John

  5. Even the prickly can be beautiful.

  6. Very distinct and very pretty!
    Have a Beautiful Day!
    Peace :)
