Beauty and the Beast

That's what I always think of when I see a cactus blooming.  They are so beastly looking and yet their blooms are so beautiful.

At 5:30 this morning when I walked out into the familyroom, this is what I saw outside on the patio.  Unreal beautiful blooms and on such a tiny spiny ugly plant.


 The Lord is amazing, He shows us beauty in everything.


 Such beauty is hard to describe.


I hope you find beauty in unexpected places today.

  3. I am always in awe of the delicate blooms found on such wickedness.

    I was thinking of you and your husband. We put a bid on a home Friday. Fingers crossed. The backyard could really be something. :)

  16. I do like cactus but have never seen them bloom before. Wow! The pale pink flowers are just so beautiful. I just love the pale pink colour. This flower will inspire me to create a mood board for a baby girl’s nursery and write a blog post about flowers in a nursery. Thanks for sharing...
