Spring comes fast !

Spring comes fast !, originally uploaded by angryparsnip.

Spring comes fast in Tucson .

My plan was to document the new growth on the Prickly Pear, every day
I was going to take a picture of how fast it grows.

Wahahahahahahahah ...

Time flew away and a week later ( goodness ) the small green sprouts
that were big as you thumb nail, some, have already gotten as big as
the palm of your hand.
I rather like the Magenta, Purple, Lavender, Electric Lime and Blue-
green of this cactus.

The Foothills near my home have turned green and every plant is in
bloom, color is everywhere. I think nature knows that the hot Summer
is just around the corner so all the plants and animals don't waste a
second of the Fabulous Arizona Spring.

  1. I just love this cactus, and the pot is pretty great too.

    Most of the Prickly Pear Cactus are shades of green but this one stands out with all the Lavender and Magenta. The blooms are always yellow quite stunning.

    The pot has 3 feet and very uneven and rough, the slab seam is just folded together. Very fabulous.
