Beginning October 21, this blog, Rain Trueax's Rainy Day Thoughts, will have a co-author-- painter and long-time friend, Diane Widler Wenzel. We have been sharing, encouraging, and discussing life for over 50 years. We don't always agree... I think this will be fun trip for us both. New posts will be on Saturdays and otherwise randomly as something of interest happens.

Cactus and shades of yellow
The prickly pear cactus blooms from yellow to almost an orange and on the same cactus. The problem with sharing here is, as it was with the pinks, what to leave out? They are all such beautiful blossoms.
When the entire plant is in bloom, it's transformed into its own garden.
To me, this little guy defines ecstasy. I watched as he rolled and almost seemed to wash himself in the pollen. That is joy personified. When the cactus bloom, the desert is alive with buzzing insects racing between each bloom for more of the sweetness.
