A Thousand Different Ways to Say "Cactus"

Bob and I recently vacationed near Phoenix, Arizona. Because we love gardens of any kind, we visited the Desert Botanical Garden. The Sonoran Desert is beautiful in its own way. LOTS of cacti! What is so surprising is the myriad of different varieties of cacti. In this post, I'll simply share several photos from our adventure. Cacti speak for themselves.

Don't touch!

I thought this cacti looked like an octopus. Indeed, that's what it is called!

Photo op!

This quirky cactus is a rare crested saguaro.

Up next . . . wildflowers of the desert!

Great photos! That first one is just astounding, with all those different kinds of cacti in one place.

We all know nature isn't always soft and cuddly. These have a dangerous beauty all their own.

Climbing the craggy boulders of the publishing summit is quite a difficult endeavor ...while I, too, could never plead peace while ignoring the corrosive crimes against humanity. Wanna help? Looky...

Our 24-wildchild, flame-thrower, germ-warFAIR-blogs are a total wasteOtime ...yet, a total wealth of bottomless inferences, nuanced sophistication, and synonymous metaphors which shall creep stealthily across thy brain like the vivid, brazen dawn. And, frankly, I wouldn't be too concerned about what the bionic, bloated, whorizontal world thot about me, dear; I'd be much more worried about what JESUS shall say at the General Judgement.

First, why else does a moth fly from the night than to a bold, attractive candle Light? Don't let His extravagant brilliance be extinguished, girl. You're creative, yes? Then fly-away with U.S. to the antidote.

Meet this ex-mortal Upstairs for the most extra guhroovy, pleasure-beyond-measure, party-hardy-reality-show-addiction 24/7 you DO NOT wanna miss, where the Son never goes down from a VitSee-ing, ultra-passionate-YOUTHwitheTRUTH in which you'll find nonillions X nonillions X nonillions... of deluxe-cubed-HTTP (<-- pi) opportunities for enveloping, engulfing excitement; where you'll looove an endless eternity of aplomBOMBs falling ALL over thy incredible, indelible cranium, as you'll have an XtraXcitinXpose with an IQ much higher than K2 resulting in an explosion of obscene exuberance, time without end.

Last, here's what the prolific, exquisite GODy sed: 'the more you shall honor Me, the more I shall bless you' -the Infant Jesus of Prague.

Go git'm, girl. You're incredible.
