We have had a number of rain storms in the past few weeks ( and one hail storm which I will get into later, only because it semi totaled our car ).  After one particular one, it seemed like the cactus all just started bursting out in blooms.  They didn't last that long, so I was glad I managed to get some photographs.

There are some challenges with living out in the country, but on the other hand, it can be absolutely beautiful too.

I love your cactus pictures. You are right about them not lasting very long. I got a picture of one in our flower bed and also a beautiful purple blooming one that our daughter brought in from the pasture and planted in a pot. I got a new computer three weeks ago with Windows 8.1 and I haven't learned how to send pictures on it yet.

Thanks, Lou Ann. Larry has a Windows 8 laptop/tablet, and I have yet to play with it.. Good ol' Windows 7 for me for now :)
