FLOWER OF THE DAY PLUS SQUARE AND SPIKY MARCH DAY 4 – Marilyn Armstrong

Day Four – March Spiky Squares!

More Blooming Cactus – FOTD – o3/05/2019

Snow fell overnight. Not a few inches, but 18 inches.  Which is a lot of snow, no matter how you care to measure it. For me, it’s up to my knees. We got lucky and the plow came early in the afternoon.

Garry went out and cleaned off the car, which was a lot bigger a deal than it was supposed to be, but we’ve had a lot of sleet and when that stuff flies off the top of your car and hits the windshield of the car behind you, people get killed or minimally, injured.

So no matter who you are or what you drive, you have to clean off the top, not just the windshield and windows. They have special places where trucks can go to get their tops cleaned off. Apparently, getting hit by the snow or sleet from the top of a large truck can make a big mess of your car. And you.

Meanwhile, there’s the cactus:

Warm flowering cactus

It’s a cactus. It’s pointy

Big cactus, many flowers

Happy spiky, jagged, pointy, bristly, serrated, prickly, spiny, and barbed’ squares!

Day Three – March Spiky Squares!

More Blooming Cactus – FOTD – o3/04/2019

Snow falling tonight and I’m hoping we won’t get as much as promised. I guess I’ll know in the morning. Meanwhile, it’s snowing pretty heavily out there.

We might get up to a foot, but I’m hoping for less. Please.

My cactus is blooming more than I’ve ever seen it bloom before. I have to assume that after this, it’s going to want to sleep for a while!

Lots of pointy parts because … it’s a cactus.

Flowers!!

This last one isn’t square, but I wanted to show you the whole plant. I think it actually looks better “in person.”

The full flowering plant and it’s going to get better … so many buds.

Happy spiky, jagged, pointy, bristly, serrated, prickly, spiny, and barbed’ squares!

SQUARE AND SPIKY MARCH DAYS – 2 – Marilyn Armstrong

Day Two of March Spiky Squares!

March. Snow fell last night and tonight, another bigger storm is on the way and we aren’t getting out of this house until Monday afternoon. After the plow comes through. I hope.

Blooming cactus

Even the flower is spiky

Spiky forever!

And after that, the deep cold. So … here are a couple of spiky pictures of my blooming cactus. It’s the least I can do for those locked in by the weather.

Now, these are spiky! But these are, after all, cactus.

Happy spiky, jagged, pointy, bristly, serrated, prickly, spiny, and barbed’ squares!
