Tucson's prickly pear cactus are pretty durable and every year they manage to survive our triple digit temperatures as they patiently wait for the rains. This prickly pear, however, doesn't have to wait for the monsoons for a break. It's a metal sculpture that is beautiful in any weather.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
I've never seen a prickly pear sculpture that is FLOWERING!! That's beautiful! And, this guy functions as a Guard Cactus, too, look at those sharp spines!! Is this at Harlow's?ReplyDelete
Be careful in that heat, I know it's like a furnace...monsoons may be coming up next week, so it's a game of Chicken now: who will flinch first and it's always the monsoon that gives in!
Hi Elizabeth ~ Yes, I spotted it at Harlow's. The air right now actually feels thick. Monsoons any day now.....whew.ReplyDelete
