prickly cheers

Sending a collective holiday hug, using all of our arms, to everyone out there reading this. Hope your day is going as pleasantly as ours. Still cold here, but lots of sun and scenery. And doesn't saguaro cactus look cheerful with their many raised arms. It takes 135-165 years for one arm to grow. Wonder how old this one is?
I do like the look and feel of the real desert. Especially in late afternoon when shadows are low and plummy. Saguaros grow only in the Sonoran desert. Imagine that! It's sort of crazy-lonely beautiful.
