Cactus Monday

My friend went to Painting with a Twist (check out their website here) today and brought home this masterpiece created by her.  As soon as I saw it, I knew I needed to share it for Cactus Monday! 

They have locations in several different states and while I haven't gone yet's a very cool place to go.  You pick a picture and then the artist is there to help guide you in painting your own version of it.  While you're working, you can bring wine (they provide the glasses) or Dr. Pepper in my case and munchies.  Girl Time!!

For my own contribution, my Donkey Ear is finally getting some bloom action.  The buds actually droop down first, then the bloom falls out and over a period of days deepens to a darker magenta hue...gorgeous!!  I don't have a picture of the "final" bloom, but this is what it looked like when it first dropped out.  Bear with me, I'm sure next week's post will be more of this beauty!!

Stop by Teri's Painted Daisies to join in the cactus fun!


  1. Interesting Donkey Ear blooms!!! Very nice!!! Can't wait to see more as they keep going!

    That painting place sounds so cool! My cousin, who visited over Thanksgiving, told me they opened one where she lives. I will have to check it out around here! That is a great painting your friend made!!! Love it!!!

  2. Ohhh, I like the idea of taking a group of friends for a painting class, especially if you can bring wine!

    The bloom is also very nice. It's amazing how pretty these blooms look through all stages.

  3. Oh that painting is so cool!!! Love it.
    I am anxious to see the bloom on that plant. It looks so pretty already!


  4. HCM! That is a great painting. Oh, the blooms will be really nice!

  5. Wow love that painting! And the blooms are awesome, can't wait to see the blue!
