Ah yes, Spring Fever can be so stimulating. It's the what that gets me. The light in these pictures says it all. It shows the awakening of the season. I sure wish I could be in AZ to sketch with you sometime. The whole gang together for Cactus Monday and shopping. Sounds heavenly.

My brother lives in Tucson and visiting him in April and November when the weather is great and the seasons changing. I would love to have 3 homes-one in the high desert, one at the ocean and one in the mountains...

I thought for a moment you were poorly from your post title, so glad I had it wrong. Another very interesting Cactus Monday post and that first photo I simply want to paint in my garden Monet style. Our garden is looking pretty with tiny daffodils, crocus, miniature irises (in my February garden sketchbook to be posted someday soon) and the snowdrops still out, but no sign of cactus round here. That availability list was amazing in its depth. How can there be so many??

Oh man, I think it would be so awesome if us Monday gals got together! Too bad there are things like jobs, money and time that get in the way :P
These photos are very inspiring for future CM sketches!

HCM to you my friend ;)

Unbelievable!!!!! Oh I'm just going to get in my car and appear over there eventually and have that Cactus Monday fantasy! Next Monday OK!

I wish, I wish and I wish... maybe we can plan that?

But would they all fit and survive in my little house...
...and where is the cash?
Wake up! ...got to get back to painting some more...
Thanks for the dream and HCM :-)

Hey Margaret! We're having spring early up here in Colorado! This is my favorite time of the year! The crocus are blooming, the tulips are just popping their greens up. Wonder if we'll have a spring snowstorm? We could sure use the moisture! Marva

I am developing a whole new appreciation for this prickly plant from my Cactus Monday visits.
