"Monday, Monday..."

... so good to me,
Bah-da, bah-da, da, da
Monday Monday, it was all I hoped it would be
Oh Monday morning, Monday morning couldn't guarantee
Bah-da, bah-da, da, da
That Monday evening you would still be here with me."
-The Mamas and The Papas, circa 1966 ;)

Thanks for being here
all these Cactus Monday mornings
and evenings!
Bah-da, bah-da, da, da!

Another wonderfully fresh Cactus Monday -- love the lights and darks on this one!! Now I'm going to have to go see if I can find Monday, Monday on one of the internet jukeboxes - ha ha. Of course, the other M and P songs are starting to float in my mind. . . California Dreaming for one!

This post gives us the full experience! Music and scenery...oh wait, the wine is missing. Margaret?

the candle song was for my "canned lights" post. I usually pick out a tune to go with my Illustration friday pics :)

You know, I was reading your profile and see you were a middle school teacher! God Bless you!!! It takes someone very special, and wonderful! Just wanted to tell you that one person who inspired me to love plants and biology was a young middle school teacher who taught my science class in 7th grade...he loved plant biology, and was an artist. We would come in to the classroom and find the boards covered with all colors of botanical chalk drawings... with all of the parts of plants, and descriptions, etc. I'm sure this slanted my brain to find plants extremely alluring all these years!

Ahhh, the Mamas and Papas. I don't care if it ages me; I loved them with my favorite being Spanish Harlem.

Your cactus and it's colors make the desert look like a friendly place. Very nice picture.
