"I'm a Lonely Little Saguaro...

...in a bougainvillea patch...
a bougainvillea patch,
a bougainvillea patch.

I'm a lonely little saguaro
in a bougainvillea patch...
...Oh,
won't you come and play with me?"

Have a Happy Cactus Monday All...
...And don't forget to set aside some time to
PLAY! :)

Happy 91st Birthday Ollie!
and
Happy 1st Birthday Austin!
We Love You Both!

It's beautiful! And cool too. I love the colors, the depth, the mix of drawing and paint, everything! I didn't know there were bougainvillee near the desert. we have a lot if them where I live too. And some cactus too, but not many varieties.

Beautiful, as always Margaret.

Appreciate the warm colours this morning as I sit here listening to the rain crashing down on the studio roof!

Nicely done.....I love the way you placed the red on the bouganvillea. I must tell you "Queen of the Night" BLOWS ME AWAY !!!!

Wow.....she looks like I can reach out and touch her....

Kudos !

Such a cheerful guy even though all lonesome. If he keeps singing like this he won't be lonesome for long.

How can a saguaro be loney when it's surrounded by the beautiful bougainvillea? They can always stick together!
