Purple prickly pear

At the Desert Garden in Phoenix, AZ, a new succulent to me, a purple opuntia or prickly pear.

Prickly pear cactus in Arizona, in tones of lavender or purple. See the heart-shaped paddles?

Daytime Christmas tree

Our Christmas Eve day tree. I like how it looks in the daytime almost as much as the nighttime.

Bougainvillea indoors

I have a standard bougainvillea plant (a little tree) that lives on my patio in the summer and indoors with the houseplants when it gets cold. It loves the warm indoors temps, the big sunny south-facing window, and the extra plant food. Flowers!

Rose bouquet

Rain is predicted, so I went out and cut some roses.

I’m posting a second photo of this same bouquet from a different angle. Which do you prefer?

This is in honor of the 25,000th comment received on this blog, on the Cherry Tomatoes post below (thank you, Magical Mystery Teacher!). Every single comment I have ever received here has been kind and positive. What a fine group of people are photo-blog visitors!
