Agave Cactus and Prickly Pear (above)

Agave (fat green one), Teddy Bear Cholla (fuzzy white) and Buckhorn Cholla (yellow flowers)
Beautiful, supple plumpness, soft to the eye, flowing with color, textures to die for!
But beware the just might get hurt! As a matter of fact, it's guaranteed!
Sound like something familiar? These simple little sun sucking planets could be a wonderful metaphor for say; People? Life? Love? Spirituality? (what's your metaphor?)
Beauty and the Beast all rolled into one.
But then again, what's life without a little prick once in awhile?
Open yourself up to Beauty and the Beast.
Let the Cactus of Arizona inspire you to get pricked, you just might enjoy it!
Finding a new dimension to yourself in the process. Don't worry about the blood, consider it a badge of honor.
