Proof That Life Can Be Beautiful

Today, I thought I’d share a few photos I took yesterday at Laity Lodge in the Texas Hill Country. Here’s proof that life can be beautiful.

    Bringing the beauty of nature into peoples’ lives is one of the main reasons that I love being a landscape designer.

    Yes, indeed!

    Those photos really are lovely, Mark.  I’ve never seen the Prickly Pear in flower, but I’ve enjoyed eating many a prickly pear (with thanks to my lovely, but late friend, Annemarie Basson in South Africa)

    I’ve had prickly pear jelly. Quite good!

    Where are the pictures of the flash flood?

    I wish I had been there to take some.

    Loved the pictures. I lived in Littleton Colo for some years and we had a small cactus garden. When the bloomed they were beautiful. (Any other time they were a pain..literally…as when trying to pull out the weeds!! Ouch, ouch, ouch.

    Thanks for sharing, Bro Mark.

    Indeed! Cactus can be very painful. I’ve learned the hard way.
