If A Picture Is Worth a 1000 Words...

 ... what is a 1000 pictures worth?
According to Blogger, today is my 1000th post!
I took these photos today on our back patio. The unsightly cactus plant blossoms every May and produces these amazingly beautiful flowers, which are almost impossible to capture right.
Hope all the moms had a wonderful Mother's Day.

Congratulations on your 1,000th post.

Cactus flowers are a challenge. Their colors are so intense that at times it is difficult to capture their texture and their color at the same time.

I love your dog photo from the other day. Great angle.

I had a cactus bloom this week, and the blooms are so unique.

Thats a nice round number and as I am around 150 short of that I have a good idea of the dedication and effort to get there. Well done!

Well done! I am not even up to 200 yet! I have a friend who used to live in Palos Verdes and have been there a few times.
