Ocotilla - 2013

Every year our huge Ocotilla gets prettier and prettier. This year I am taking a photo as most of the blooms have opened up now. We had a tremendous windstorm last week which blew quite a few of the blooming spikes off, but we still have lots. Love it!

I have painted this once when it was a lot younger, may need to do that again, I just love the colors of the blooms.

Such a big specimen. I do miss the southwest. We are heading to Alaska this morning for the summer. Bill will be flying and I will be painting/writing. Life is good. Please keep in touch. BTW, I'd love to see the finished painting of this cactus.

Have a safe trip and stay inspired to write and paint. I envy you being in Alaska all summer!
