"Out Of My Mind...! "

Fantasia imaginina

Characterized by frequently changing form and color.
Natural habitat located somewhere between the subconscious
and
the tip of one's paintbrush.
Classified into two categories according to flowering cycle:
Nocturnal dream blossoms
and
mid-afternoon day-dreaming blooms.
The ancients of Bloggerama noticed cacti of this type
mysteriously appearing like magic out of thin air
on Mondays.
Hence, they celebrated these sightings with special
festivals and regalia.
Then, under the leadership of their Queen,
TeriPaintedDaisyius,
these festivals where passed down through generations
and became commonly known as
Cactus Monday
celebrations.

This species of cacti needs minimal care...
thrives in the rich environment and wonders of blogland
and is intrigued by
the casual passing by of interested visitors.

So,
In the words of the those very wise ancients...
Happy Cactus Monday All!

Thanks all! FYI...I used plastic wrap over mu first wash and it gave me that textured effect...learned that in a watercolor workshop I took last spring...:)
