Where I live, “spiky” and “flower” are often found side by side. In this case, we’ll just add “orange” for the trifecta. Happy Friday!

Christmas?  Well, my Christmas cactus thinks so anyway.  It’s missed blooming for a few years now, so I’m just glad to see its one beautiful flower, much happier than I was to see that WP has changed the “new post” configuration once again.  Why move everything to the other side?  And what else will suddenly bite me on the derrière?

OK, forget it.  It’s Saturday, the weekend, time to have fun.  Let’s just concentrate on the flower and have a super Saturday!

I’ve been blessed to be able to do a lot of traveling this year, overseas as well as in the US.  This weekend, I’m in Shenandoah, Iowa, visiting our older daughter.  This morning I had a lovely (but chilly & windy) walk on the Wabash Trace, post material for tomorrow.  But today is time for WordPress’s photo challenge.  Last week I was very late (travels again), which means not as many views.  But that’s OK.  This week’s theme is “Minimalist.”  I’ll work hard at getting to as many of your photos as I can.  It’s always great to see what you’ve come up with and to learn for other photographers.


“Foreshadow” as this week’s theme is ironic, as it finds me at the end of several weeks of getting ready for our annual vacation to the mountains of Wyoming. If there were a photo for this foreshadowing of vacation preparation, it would be a blurred shot of me in constant motion. 🙂 I apologize in advance if I don’t get to your photo the next several weeks or if it’s very late when I finally arrive. And thanks for stopping by even if I haven’t been able to visit you. Where we’ll be at over 7,000′, there is no phone service unless you have a satellite phone and slow internet, which we’ve only had available in the last years.

But on to my selection for “Foreshadow”. I hope you enjoy it. At some point, I’ll be doing an entire life sequence of the poppy, but for now….
