Colwell Cedars Retreat

A Busy Neighbor in a Barrel Cactus.

          A solitary bee worked its way through all the blossoms on a single barrel cactus from 12:31pm to 12:35 pm, March 27, 2017, near our West Loop Trail.
          Joe did stop to enjoy the activity in bottom center of photo.  And after the bee went on to other flowers, I circled around to see the view from the other side:  blooming barrel with West Elk Wilderness in deep distance.
          As always, Life is about "stopping to smell the roses," or in this case, "watching the bee do its thing."

          Enjoy the show!

Cacti at Cedars

          Fortuitous timing and amounts of rain in May and June 2016 lead to abundant growth and blooming of Big and Small Pricklypear cacti (Opuntia) at Cedars.

          We are always surprised by the diversity of pink and yellow blooms, and the wild life within.  What a show!
