  1. Siobhan, your opening image reminds me of snow at it’s best, before it becomes dirty or melted. But we don’t often picture it on a cactus, which makes a wonderful image. Your beach image made me imagine the cold of a wintry day in Oregon – the texture is perfect.

    • Thanks, Tina! Yes, snow accumulating on cactus makes a great opportunity for photos. The seaside picture was taken in July, but it was COLD! Still a nice place to visit, no matter the season. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks. I keep thinking the snow and cold temps will kill my cactus, but they keep getting bigger. 😐 Not sure how to prune them. 🌡
