Barrel cactus~Cactus Monday 011110


Before I ran my errands yesterday morning, I stopped at the Palm Desert Visitor's Center. The early morning light was fantastic and I wanted to wander around and see what was there again. It was a beautiful, crisp, clear morning yesterday, although rain is forecast by the beginning of next week here. So, I'm glad I was able to take some photos yesterday. This little barrel cactus caught my eye. It even had some leaves stuck in its spines. Cactus Monday for January 11, 2010.

It's as if it's lit from within. Beautiful!
I'm very familiar with the light in Palm Desert. Lucky you!
