Here are some pictures that I took while walking the dogs. One is a prickley pear in bloom and the other one is a hedgehog in bloom. . They are almost the same intencse cerise color. The flower shapes are a bit different. They have a slight perfume to them. The bees have a great time gathering the pollen from them. You have to be careful when you look down into the flower, because there usually is a bee in the center. They only bloom for a few days.
I was surfing and came to this fun thing. It creates a word picture for creating anything you want to say. This is great for making Birthday Cards. I used the name, birthplace important events etc. I printed it out. I did not publish it to the internet to keep the child safe, because it had personal information. (some of the published ones are X rated, so be cautious if you have kids.) This is the one that I did create for public viewing.
