Prickly pears

Prickly pear.  Thats a one of my favorite words … or things?  I have never tasted one so I can’t say its my favorite thing, but definitely when you are feeling down try saying prickly pear with a furrowed brow.  impossible. Its IS one of my favorite things to see and I do get pretty giddy about that.  At my mom’s house on the walk to the downtown you have to walk by this old nursery and on the back side of it there is this huge mesh of cactus and prickly pear.  This happens to be right before the petting zoo, so you can imagine its a pretty good walk.  Anyways, I’ve been working on a card with a cactus so I feel like I have been really in tune with cactus images.  It’s what I call buying a car theory. When you buy a new car, you buy this car you hadn’t really thought of much, but then all of sudden you see that car EVERYWHERE.  Where was this car before, how come this car is everywhere now huh?  This theory can be applied to pretty much anything.  Once a subject is brought to your mind you see it anywhere.  I also think this applies to people.  You meet someone at a party, then you start to see them everywhere, but before then did you see them everywhere? Were they just another face of the masses?  Or now that you have met you two are in this rubber band of seeing each other.  Anyways, thats what’s happening over here with cactus, cacti, succulents and all things desert like.  So I went and got it out of my system a little.  I’ll post the final product and the source of all this cacti madness when its over.  Hopefully within the next month.
