About Today’s Photo:
We’ve been in the Colorado and New Mexico for the past week and a half enjoying the desert and high plains, so it’s a bit of a shocker coming back to Vermont to find such persistently cool and damp (and greeeeeen!) conditions. I thought I’d share a photo I took of a blooming pricky pear cactus at Plaza Blanco in Abiquiu, NM (where Georgia O’Keefe did a lot of her later painting).
