Arizona yards don’t look anything like those in the Midwest.  In fact, don’t call it a lawn, because according to Merriam-Webster a lawn is:

ground (as around a house or in a garden or park) that is covered with grass and is kept mowed.

No grass and no mowing in most parts of Arizona, water being at a premium.  So a walk around my parents’ yard would be on gravel and you’d see rocks, cacti, and also some trees and flowers.

These look sort of soft and fuzzy, but appearances are definitely deceiving!

No work today, so I can participate in the Weekly Photo Challenge again.  This week’s theme is “Prolific.”   In the desert, there are many plants that have a prolific number of spines, such as this cactus.  It’s beautiful, but don’t overbalance while admiring it!

It may not be a rose, but it’s certainly between two or more thorns!  I like the contrast between the sharp thorns and the soft flower.  Be careful if you attempt to pick this flower!!
