“The Cholla are Blooming!”


Description from Cotopaxi Chickie Sue: I hope you all appreciate the stickers I got, getting close enough to take this picture! For you easterners, this is pronounced 'choya'. It's one of my favorite cacti!

    OOO! Thanks for the memories Chickie Sue!
    On our numerous trip to Colorado, we’d stop along the way and walk around looking at all the cacti, including the Cholla. I can hear the cicadas (or whatever they are) singing away in the hot sun. And I can smell the scent of the new and interesting plants.(Probably some sort of sage I guess?)
    And yes, I remember the stickers too!!!
    Great pick!! Wonderful memories!

    This pick brings back memories for me too. All the trips across the desert each summer (anyone remember the old rte 66?) to visit family in the midwest. These beads are a perfect fit for the pictures that you posted. Very pretty!

    Thanks everyone! Glad it brought memories back for some of you. Sweet Chick, you probably were smelling the sage – and you’re right about the cicadas! and i probably wouldn’t have gotten stuck if I hadn’t been wearing sandals! LOL!
