This morning’s cactus offerings. The super fragrant night blooming cereus is at it. Too many (large) blossoms to get in one shot. And another hedgehog pinkie, amongst some groundcover. Never get tired of seeing what new in blooming in the cactus garden. Sometimes one or two, sometimes forty. #mayinthedesert#cactus#cactusflower#nightbloomingcereus#tucson#tucsonaz

#tbt to many, many Mother’s Day cards from @chrismccaleb (none from when he was a little guy). I think about a mother in Colorado who will never receive another card from her slaughtered son and it positively breaks my heart. I know I’m a very lucky mom on so many levels but the simple fact that my son is alive is #1.#son#love#gunskill

Today’s offering from the cactus garden. Night bloomers. They’ll fade by 10 or so. This variety has no scent at all and the cactus itself is only about an inch wide. Every day it’s something different. #cactus#cactusflower#cereus#springtimeinthedesert#tucson#tucsonaz

If this is your new hip (1st pic) all you see is a lot of hardware and super long screw but swipe right to see what @chrismccaleb saw when he looked. Evidently, I have a white ghost dog living in my pelvis. A spirit animal evidently snuck in during surgery. I think it’s good luck. #hipreplacement#ghostdog#spiritanimal

Happy Earth Day! yes, the cactus garden is blooming a lot today. Haven’t posted lately as I’m recouping from hip surgery and it’s hard to climb around in the garden. But, too pretty to ignore. #cactus#cacti#springtimeinthedesert#springtimeintucson#tucson#tucsonaz

The rare February snowstorm in Tucson. Photo and first video from A Mountain and 2nd video during yesterday’s snowfall. Several inches of fluffy huge flakes in town (and rain) but several feet on the mountains. All the mountains - and it’s still there. Cold but beautiful. ❄️❄️🌵❄️ #Tucson#tucsonarizona#tucsoninsnow#snowintucson#weirdweather#thisisglobalwarming#mtlemmon

Happy 15th Birthday, Duncan!!!! 🐾🐾🎂❤️The sweetest bestest Westie ever (don’t tell Toby I said that). Kind and clever and patient and bright and silly. I always knew I wanted a Westie but didn’t know why until him. He changed my life. #westhighlandterrier#westhighlandwhiteterrier#westiesofinstagram#westies#westiesarethebesties#westiepuppy#duncan

There is literally room for two additional people to the left of the dogs while those are my feet squished in to the 4” for me. Selfish dogs. #westitude#westhighlandterrier#westhighlandwhiteterrier#whwt#westieproblems#westiesofinstagram#whosebedisthis?#whereamisupposetosleep? 🐾🐾
