Hopefully the rocks aren't too pointy, that would sure hurt when you hit them lol
LOL! Actually the cacti were worse! Have a good one!
You have a life! Hurrah. Don't feel obligated to catch up. Enjoy yourself. Each day I really have to stretch to find something to blog about. Not much going on this time of year.
You are so kind, Peggy! Thanks for understanding. I do try to catch up, because I enjoy all your posts! Have a good one!
Enjoy the desert, super landscape.Looks a lot warmer than some other places, and no need to fret if you are a little behind, life will still carry on every day for you.
Hi Jean! The Sonoran Desert is spectacular! A very alien, but beautiful, ecosystem. Hope all is well with you in NZ!
The great thing about blogging is that there is truly no such thing as being behind. There's no timeframe rules or deadlines or anything like that. Just blog when you can, read others' blogs when you have time, and enjoy the process! It's not a job!
Thanks, Debra! I'm always driven! LOL It's my personality! Hope all is well with you in The Great White North! Guess you don't have to worry about scorpions, rattlesnakes, and tarantulas there! Have a goo one!
Lovely photo, Louise! Enjoy your time both catching up on blogs and offline. Take good care of yourself, my cherished friend. :)
Thanks, Linda! It's been almost 35 years since I was among my favorite saguaro cacti. We studied their lifecycle almost every year I taught. It did my heart good to see these majestic plants again! Now if I can just get ahead! Thanks for the encouragement, my special friend!
I am behind all the time. Maybe we shouldn't see it that way.Have a great weekend.
Have a great weekend too, BG! Thanks for the encouragement!
No worries! You'll catch up.
Thanks, Alex! I'm working on it! Have a good one!
Well, I think you're in the best possible place to be in winter - the warmth of the desert! Have fun!
Thanks, Barb! I heard you've had two feet of snow in Breck in the past few days!
I looked closely at the 1st photo and estimate the cacti at 20 to 30 feet tall. Amazing!
Hi Geo! The saguaro cacti are amazing! They grow very slowly, but because of their long lifespans, they can reach 70 feet in height. The two I am standing by are a good 30 feet tall and at least 75 years old (approximate age at which they begin to branch). They probably weigh several tons! The saguaro is one of my most favorite plants in the world! I'm sorry I haven't been by since Christmas. I'm getting caught up slowly. Hope all is well with you and Norma!
Louise, take heed of what Debra said above.....only do what you can don't worry about the rest. Life will go on. That desert looks SO inviting.
Great pictures! I don't think I've ever seen cacti that big :)I know how you feel about being behind, I always want to visit more blogs than I can squeeze in one day, not to mention my own writing. Trying to catch up, too :) I'm happy to hear you are doing well!Enjoy your time and don't stress about blogging. We're happy to hear from you whenever you have time.Lots of hugs to you,Beate
LISTENING to your beloved followers really helps to put EVERYTHING into some kind of perspective that works for you, Louise. When I first started blogging, it was everyday OMG what will I say tomorrow...on and on....it went. Then one day after my heart event I decided that starting blogging was one step but to let it take over was something I couldn't handle or allow. I have Jim. I have Sophie. I have other things that make my heart sing. So use all of this as a learning curve and process. Make a list and then decide what needs to be completed or maybe even done away with. OK my ol' friend the time is yours and I hope things start to come together and jell, maybe like jello ~ strong, wobbly and yummy!!Ron
Friday? ;) Hey, let me toss in some hard cheese for you to pile up and stand on.
Thank you for your comments! I appreciate the time and energy you put into making them very much.
