Mellow Yellow Monday ~ July 27, 2009 ( Pricklypear )


***

It's time once again for
Mellow Yellow Monday!



*Go here to find other yellow posts!*

'Pricklypear'

This is a cactus plant that grows wild in pastures and woodland and sandy places in our area and in much of the south.

The flower is very beautiful but don't dare try and pick one! :)

*This is a childhood memory/story of mine-concerning this plant!*

I like pricklypears, there was on beach we would go to in Florida where they grew on the dunes. Very nice pics.

Hi Sally,

Thanks for reading.


The flowers just brought back the memories of that post I had written when I was doing my 'Mom memories/stories,'so I thought I'd link to it.

I sometimes think, maybe, I write too much from the heart...but that's just me. I mean... if I can't say what's in my heart-and my true memories- what's the point?

I'm always amazed at the LOVELY blossoms produced by cactus plants! I played at Small Reflections this week.
Hugs and blessings,
