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.

Bee Action

The bees were happy and active because my big cactus bloomed again.

There were a lot more but evidently they are camera shy.  They'd scatter when I'd get close.


  1. Great to see the blossoms, they look wonderful.

  2. They must be very sweet! I think it is so fascinating when cactus bloom, and the blooms are usually beautiful, like these.

  3. absolutely gorgeous! love the 2nd to last shot where you can see multiple bees flying off.

  4. absolutely gorgeous cactus flowers.. beautiful photos; oops, just glanced up and see i said the same thing as TEX but it IS true... i will say stunning..

  5. Great flowers. Desert bees must by very tough to live in the conditions of the desert.

  6. Beautiful blooms!! As I recall, these blooms are over quickly, but sure are beautiful while they last. Have a good weekend.

  7. Oh my gosh...oh my gosh. This cactus is dazzling Andrew.

    Hey, I'm so sorry I took so long to get back to visiting with had shared a link last week at I'd Rather B Birdin''s been such a busy week, I made sure I stopped by today.

  8. It's waiting in line for the bees! Almost.

  9. Amazing!
    The blooms are very like the Night-Blooming Cactus I have
    Have a great day!
