"Bloomin' Beauty..."





Gentle giants
with lush white flower bouquets in hand
stand tall and proud and gallant....
steadfastly guarding their wild desert kingdoms
with a rugged type of kindness
providing perches
and safe havens for those in need.
Sentinels of the sand
they remind us that even in the most austere
moments of life
we can find beauty blossoming.
Happy Cactus Monday!
