Happy Cactus Monday!

Another species of the rare messyfishicus cactilius! Strange colours are attributed to the extreme poverty of prismacolor pencil variety. (One must buy a green and a yellow next time I am in the art shop.)

Well for lack of enough colors this I would say is very stunning and successful!
Remember you are in your "Blue Period" :-)
Have a HCM and a great week....

Maybe running out of yellow and green was a happy accident. I like the red and blue coloring and the white highlights. Your cactus drawing is really lovely!

HCM!

Please pardon my ignorance, but DO you have cacti that grow naturally in Australia? I've heard that they are confined to the Americas, but I don't know if this is true.

Hey thanks for the comments re my mould situation. I have a few options to try now.
Where abouts in the Southern Highlands will you be moving to. My folks are at Bundanoon and a dear friend at Bowral.

I love this color of cactus. Use up those colors you don't often use. HCM.

Lovely cactilius I must say.

Your lack of green meant we got to see a wonderful colorful cactus! Love it.

HCM!
