Tomorrow is my toe amputation. I’ll report on it when I’m home and whatever they give me wears off.
Today, it is time to smell the flowers and appreciate life.
This is an Argentine Giant cactus and you can see why it is called a giant. That flower is immense for the plant size.
The trees are in bloom. In April, the Palo Verdes started with their yellow flowers (palo verde means green skin in Spanish) so the flowers and green bark are great.
They’re all over
But now, they’re losing their flowers and won’t get more until next spring.
Appreciating the flora keeps my mind occupied and not obsessed with tomorrow.
