No matter how I considered it, I couldn’t come up with an appropriate post for Easter. To me, Easter announces the presence of spring and spending time with family. More than anything else it’s a time for relaxation. It was my cactus that gave me the inspiration for today’s post. Last week it decided to celebrate the season by flowering. If you don’t know about cactus flowers, they don’t happen every year and they don’t last very long. It’s unfortunate because I happen to like cactus, They remind me of my youth and my own prickly personality. When I see a cactus flower my whole world brightens up. So what better way to celebrate Easter than to share my cactus flower and a few other pictures with everyone? Hope you enjoy.

Of course, Spring is not only about flowers. It also means play time for the dogs.
