Last month’s color was yellow, this month’s is green. This plant I found while walking along the canal recently makes the transition from last month to this. I’m not sure if the spines are actually hard. I didn’t touch them but it certainly makes the plant/weed fit in in Arizona! This might not be the sort of green you want to wear for St. Patrick’s Day, though! 🙂

for Life in Colour: green

    Maybe not? Happy St. Patrick’s Day! That’s a lot of celebrating since 461AD 🙂 🙂

    Unsure weather this little plant could leave a wound or not. It certainly is pretty. Happy St. Patrick’s lassie.

    • And to you, Peggy. We’re not Irish, but we love corned beef so that will be going into the pot later today. I like the corned beef hash the next day even better than the corned beef itself. 🙂

  3. Your move to Arizona has allowed a lot of us a whole new perspective on nature. 🙂

    It would help with the distancing thing. Good photo for making the switch.

  5. Nice transition image. Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Janet!

  6. Perfect for the day and the season. Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Feel free to copy/paste your link in a comment on my Spring beach walk. (or by a pingback).

    Seems as if everything in Arizona either bites, stings, or sticks you, lol. I’m enjoying getting to know your corner of the natural world, Janet.

  8. What an amazing picture
    A plant as elegant as any ballet dancer

    Definitely a “look don’t touch” plant methinks.

  11. So gorgeous. I just love the way the sun catches on each of the individual needles.

    Definitely well prepared to look after every drop of precious water it can suck up!

    Whew! Green, in the nick of time for St. Paddy’s!
    Cacti have such neat flowers.
