  1. Millie’s Happy Day. It’s almost as if she is tentatively answering the wave

    1. Derrick, I’m glad you caught that! Milly can get me to stop seeing the big world and focus instead the simple, random things. Looking through her eyes teaches me a lot.

  2. A nice burst of colour indeed, Cindy.
    I have to go with the wonderful cactus flowers, as I would never see their like over here.
    Best wishes as always, Pete.

    1. That wild one is almost as tall as I am! When they blossom, it feels like you’re privy to a private treat.

    1. Hi Paul, thanks for the kind words. That peachy color is unique on the cacti. I like it, too. That rainbow shot, the end feels like an arm’s length away.

    1. Thanks, Don. I’m sorry it’s so bitter up there. My family in Illinois are enduring the arctic blast, too. Milly has a colorful personality that out-cheers any picture I could take.

    1. Welcome back, Honkinggoose. The peach colored ones are rarer than the usual red. I love the contrast between prickles and ruffles.

    1. Thanks, Ian! It’s bizarre and contradictory. The prickles are super sharp but surrounded by beautiful blossoms. Their textures are a photographer’s friend.

    1. It is a lot of fun being a grandma. Primary colors, big bolts of colors have reintroduced themselves into my life. Thank you!

  15. Geez that’s a tough race. Milly’s Happy Day, Sherbert Sky and Brettos Bar. Well I always give it to sunsets so I guess it comes down to whether I’d eat that birthday cake or take a drink from that bar? Congratulations Milly, your cake won. 🙂 Who made that work of art by the way? Looks like old school birthday cake butter icing.

    1. It’s just a store-bought one. She like most all 2 year olds loved Elmo. Now at 4 she’s all about Frozen. She marches around and freezes everything wearing her cape and pretending she’s Elsa. She’s a hoot.

      1. That’s adorable. The cake looks good and her parents must love Let it Go. How many times have they heard it?
