"A Tangerine Sentinel..."


...keeping solitary vigil over an imaginary desert
both day and night...
blooms only in the virtual reality of my blog this
late summer day.
Happy Cactus Monday all...:)

"It is the marriage of the soul with Nature that
makes the intellect fruitful,
and gives birth to imagination."
~Henry David Thoreau

I love it!!! I really like the fade, the thorns, and as always, the way you mix them colors =) It's gorgeous!
