Purple cacti

These purple cacti are growing innocently on my pathway. They deserve to be photographed.
In fact I want to paint them as well.
Love their colors and the way the Teal dissolves into Purple.
Thank you Mother Nature for these and other gifts you have bestowed upon us.


  1. One of my favorite color combinations!! I've never seen it on you know what kind it is?

  2. And the pink flowers! I had these hearty cacti in my garden at another house. Of course, in PA, it was only shades of green...and in the winter almost black. You live in the most magical of places, Gemma, prolly cuz you're a fairy ♥♥♥

  3. these are delicious. I can see why you'd want to paint them. If I could paint, I'd do it! the textures are fantastic. especially in the first photo. I like that one a whole lot. I also checked out your other blog and I'm wanting to try that solstice drink, thanks for sharing. and thanks for stopping by my blog, I truly appreciate it. have a beautiful day!

  4. Wow those are gorgeous! they would look great painted in watercolors.
