What a beautiful cactus turkey!! I bet you use the napolitanos for stuffing :) Hmm, now that I have said that, I bet it would be good.

Margaret this is so beatiful. The wild turkey indeed has these colors in it. You have made it even more beautiful with your arrangement of colors. That poor cactus probably feels pale next to that turkey. But it doesn't have to worry...we cacuteers love it anyway. Happy Cactus monday.

Mr. Buscaglia is a wise man indeed; his comment on worry is so true! I love your work and your design sense. Your Bird of Paradise is lovely and yes, it would be stunning to see these in the wild! I saw calla lilies in Mexico and couldn't take my eyes off them! (We don't get many of those in New England!) and those bobcats...lucky you!
