An Unusual Week Tuesday Tidbits #98

What a Week!

That’s all I am going to say about this past week…

Welcome In… Let’s sit down at the table and have some good fellowship. We are all in need of that!

The first thing I have to mention is… I am enjoying my new tablecloth. It adds that seasonal touch I was looking for.

I continue to walk almost every morning enjoying the sights along the way. This saguaro had a late flower bloom. It’s odd to see these flowers now. We typically see them bloom in late spring.

But soon after seeing the saguaro I then came across these cacti in bloom as well. Fun surprises for me to share with you.

A white bougainvillea was a lovely find. Pinks and reds are more commonly found.

I’ve been staying off the pocket trails for right now. I’m waiting for the snakes to go to sleep for the winter.

This is a nice trail but the vegetation is too close to the walkway.

I did spot more prickly pear cactus. Have you ever had a prickly pear margarita or better yet have you ever had prickly pear gelato? Both are quite delicious. The juice has a sweet taste that resembles raspberries.

We are hoping to head north to a higher elevation next week to see some color on the trees.

I’m hoping for a better week for all of us. Thank you for the visit! Please take care and stay safe.

  1. Oh Nancy, I hope everything is ok, my friend. Your table is beautiful with the new tablecloth and the warm fall accents. Your morning walks provide so much beauty to enjoy. Please watch for the snakes, I am horrified of them. Surely things will be better this week. Sending hugs your way!

    1. Everything has calmed down. Thank you for worrying for us.

      I just got back from walking and the sunrise was incredible. And yes… we don’t like snakes as well. It’s why I am on the wide open trails.

      I am glad you enjoyed the table. That’s a big compliment coming from you! Thank you!

      Happy Tuesday Pam! Stay well!

  6. Oh my gosh your fall table settings are amazing!! 🙂 And while I haven’t tried prickly pear margarita or gelato, I have tried prickly pear jelly beans, gummies, and taffy. All were delightful! 🙂

    1. Well you are a Southwestern gal since you know the taste of prickly pear!

      Glad you came over for a visit.
      Happy Tuesday my friend!

    1. Believe it or not… we have a cactus that is about to bloom any day now. It’s kind of strange to see them blooming now.

      I hope to get picture when they do.

      Have a great day my friend.

  7. Having trouble sending messages since an update, if this is a repeat sorry. Your table and flowers are absolutely gorgeous!

  8. I’m sorry your week was a tough one. Too many of us have had too many of those lately. I love your tablecloth. It sets off your fall table so nicely.

  9. The desert scenery is so very interesting to someone who has not been out west, I especially enjoyed the pretty cactus blossoms. Take care and have a lovely week.

Thank You So Much... for sharing your kind words. I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedule to share your thoughts.
