Wake Up and Smell the Cactus

IMG_7105

Love the look of Prickly Pear Cactus, even more so than the smell.  But it isn’t just another pretty face (sorry I couldn’t find one in bloom – the flowers that grow from the pads are really are pretty).  This multi-colored gem outside of a new Starbucks location a rock’s throw from the Villa Mirgae captures the essence of the shading, and their medicinal properties are impressive.

Speaking of lovely landscapes among the arid deserts in Arizona, enjoy this mini-album of a day unfolding.
