My husband, Jeff, my most excellent photographer’s assistant, held the bloom of an ocotillo cactus in a better photographic angle to allow me to capture this image. There was ever so slight of a breeze, which cause the bloom to sort of blur. I decided to go with what Nature had given me, and transform this photo image into a watercolor abstract of the bloom. The colors speak of springtime and the joy of nature coming to life again after the winter cold. Of course, winter cold is a relative term in southern Arizona!
