Cactus Flower   Leave a comment

I love taking pictures of the daylilies, but the most exquisite flower of the summer blooms on the homely cactus.

Of course, it has to have its backlit picture, too.

It’s been fairly quiet around here.  We’re OK with that.  Our lives have been entirely too full of incident in the last few weeks.  Someone did report to us that there were some police in the river bottom, making a sweep.  We’ve seen probable homeless people headed out to the island.  Only half of it burned; but when the camps get started again, sooner or later they’ll get the rest.  Almost every fire has started in a homeless camp.  The exceptions I can think of offhand — one started by lightning, and one by a teenage girl who was mad at her mother.  I’m not sure how burning the river was supposed to help with that.

Well, the weather’s perfect, and there’s a three day weekend coming up.  The place will be busy, and I hope everyone has a good time.

Including us.
