for One Word Sunday: opposites

  1. Debbie Smyth says:

    Perfect oppositeness, Janet. Isn’t nature clever!

    • If it weren’t for those flowers, that opposition, people wouldn’t appreciate the desert nearly as much. The flowers are really like buds and flowers on trees and bushes and elsewhere and necessary for birds, bees, etc.

  2. Sheree says:

    Fab photo which totally aces this week’s challenge

  3. peggy says:

    Such a beautiful bloom. Makes me want to be there to view Spring in action.

  4. Dan Antion says:

    That is so pretty and unexpected. Nice!

  5. Ally Bean says:

    This is cute and pretty. Nicely oppositional

  6. Those of us not near a desert don’t realize its flowering beauties.

  7. Tina Schell says:

    There is nothing more interesting than the way these prickly characters can blossom overnight and before long retreat to their naturally thorny selves. Rather like me after a bad night’s sleep! Lovely choice Janet.

    • 🙂 I understand the comparison with you (and everyone else), Tina. Cacti are so off-putting that the gorgeous flowers certainly soften them and make them more attractive to people as well as to pollinators and birds. But that beauty is certainly opposite the way they look without the flowers. 🙂

  8. That’s lovely and perfect for the challenge.

  9. Resa says:

    Truer words were never shown! Fab, Janet!

  10. You really nailed it, Janet. 👏🏻Great idea for the challenge.

  11. de Wets Wild says:

    A beautiful juxtaposition!

  12. […] company for my morning coffee break.Special thanks go to Celeste for her opposite generations; to Janet for a great spot and sharp; to Marie for some great geographic opposites; and, to David for some […]
