Color and cactus



It is time to get you people back home some color. Here is a bouganvilla plant showing through an old wood fence in the old 4th Avenue neighborhood of Tucson. 



Agave are a favorite of painters, possibly because of the graceful curves of their foliage. 



Here is a bloom on a type of agave. Reminds me of the Trumpter honeysuckle vine back home. 



The stucco is vivid in the sunlight. 



This cactus fruit looks good enough to eat. I didn't try it, but I can only imagine that it would be delicious. 



The many permutations of prickly pear cactus each have different patterns on their lobes. That's what I call cactus leaves: Lobes. They just don't seem like leaves.
