  1. Dawn I'm so jealous it isn't funny! Cocktails in that setting? Amazing!

    Do you know how old some of the Saguaro's are?

  2. Btw, your blog is loading much faster with Google Chrome. It still takes a bit for all the widgets but it's definitely faster than IE.

  3. Wonderful photos, can imagine sitting there watching the sunset


  4. I sure do love and miss the saguaro forest, I'm too high in elevation. The first winter I spent amongst these cactus people of the desert I was constantly astounded by their various characters. THey do seem to speak. What do you think of the spines seen in the skeleton's of the dead ones? Looks t be a beautiful place to camp. Do I see a bit of red on the tips of the ocotillo?

  5. Great sunset pictures with the saguaro.

  6. My husband and I are envying your lifestyle!! Beautiful pics of the giant Cactus!

  7. What a life! Great pictures!!

  8. A New England Life
    Yes..cocktails in the desert..and remember..I invited you as a guest on my sofa!
    and google chrome messed up on my computer..i had to uninstall it..anyway..firefox i load up faster than IE.

    I will tell you what I told Sharon..We have a sofa bed here if you want to see what the desert is all about..

    Howdee Gaelyn..isnt it so cool here?
    The occotillo is blooming now..not all of them but many!
