I just can't tell you what's going through my mind at the picture of the cactus bud. :lol:
OMG Looking at it cropped like that, I can see it too. :lol:

So how about more cactus? Remember Cactus Critter? He has a new buddy. And opening blossom on another stem? Branch?

Looks like the cacti are taking advantage of the milder weather to do some serious growing. :D

The first P-38 entered service in 1941, but I'm not sure when that particular plane was built or how long they were in production. A lot of fire-power on those planes. I've heard tales of them literally cutting Zeros in half with their guns. The Japanese referred to them as "fork-tailed devils".

Yeah, and I think they may be waiting for me to go away before they bloom again. :unsure: I've been prowling around with my camera, hoping for a good shot of an open bloom, but after the first one that I missed, so far just buds large and small. :D

I still can't see Lupy's pictures either. I can go to the site, but when I click on "Browse" the page says "Temporarily Disabled," so they must be having technical difficulties.

It's fascinating to see how different familiar places were in the past. I usually like the old version better.

Between your snail friend, family and gooseberry ginger wine making, good stuff, Maddie! :thumbsup: How long before you can sample the wine? Sounds like something I'd like. :yes:

Yep, I missed them. It's hard to tell the buds about to bloom from those that just did, and I'm getting better at it, but I didn't have the time to prowl when they were ready.

Here's Leo and Moxie meeting. They decided they like each other. :D

I got logged out in the middle of posting this! Fortunately I was able to copy & paste, so I didn't lose my whole post.
