Clean Choppers

See that yucca on the horizon at center?
Although Becca and I got a really early start on our trek this morning I had to cut the hike a bit short due to a dentisti's appointment:  time for my semiannual teeth cleaning.  After the hygienist finished the dentist came in, examined my ivories (I wish), and said, "Good checkup!"  Then I was released to come home, eat lunch and post this fascinating blog entry, all the while enjoying the feel of my clean choppers.

How's this for camouflage?

Claret Cup flowers and buds

Count the buds to determine how many more flowers will bloom

Is that little green bee eating coleslaw?

An amazing number of pretty orange-red claret cup blooms on that single cactus.
