"Flummoxed...by Technology!"

I have been sent...
...by Lyn in California...
the most delightful Power Point presentation
of blooming cacti that is a "Must-See"
for all you cactus lovers
out there!
The only problem is ...
that
I cannot figure out
how to incorporate it into this post!
But
as a special treat
to those HCM friends whose personal email addy
I already have...
I will be sending it to you
"straight away."
I hope you enjoy immensely!
And...
To anyone else who would love to have it sent...
Let me know...
I need to send it via email...
Crazy technology!

for people to gain control over everything,
except over technology."

That video was stunning!!!!!! I have to admit I find it difficult to come up with interesting cactus things for Mondays, but I finally see what all the fuss is about! My goodness, absolute jewels of the desert. I have a whole new respect (and lots of inspiration) for cacti now! Thanks for sharing :)

I love the one you did...sneaking in from the right in all it's beauty! HCM Peg!

PAK ART said...

I want to come to AZ and paint cacti! The sunshine and warmth really come through. I guess I will have to be content with mountains and snow.

The Gypsy said...

Lovely colours to the cactus - these are my favs - greens and blues - ever since I saw them in the see at Moraira in Spain. I have made necklaces and mixed the colours for knitting and crochet. Lovely drawing as usual.
