These cactus blossoms grow wild in our pastures. Many, many years ago during seasons of drought, the ranchers would burn the needles off of the cactus and feed them to their cattle.
I spent a little time this weekend organizing my office/studio. I would like to have a table dedicated to daily still lifes, so I'm hoping to shop the resale stores this week. I will post any interesting finds. I love a good DIY project. :)
