Cactus Monday:Prickly Pear and Palm

This is a huge palm tree in my friend's yard. The prickly pear cactus is also huge, so one day I squatted down and took an upshot of them together. The day was foggy grey. Would've been so much better if the sky was blue! I have no idea how to use Photoshop to change reality.

Happy Cactus Monday!!

nice comparison of cactus to palm. A fun photo.
I had no idea you had an entire other blog here. Glad I made the journey over.
(I clicked on my thumbs, but not sure which one you are talking about - on blogger? in blogger comments? facebook? on my page?)
Hope you are doing well; think we will get some real rain soon?
