Colorful Trouble

02 May

Bongo and some hedgehog cacti in bloomWhat’s this?

This splash of color here.

What is it?

Is it what I think it is?

Because if it is I’m really in trouble.

It means my walks are going to take forever the next couple of weeks.

Didn’t this just happen last year?

How come it has to happen again so soon?


I think I’m going to protest.

Hedgehog cactus in bloom

Yup. The hedgehog cacti are all starting to bloom again.

And my person has to stop and take pictures of every one of them.

I might as well roll over and play dead.

    No No No, Bongo DON’T roll over!!!!! Not the right place to do that. Prickles: pain!
    You could however pop in front of the camera …casually! 😉

    Rolling over can be pinchy in your neighborhood. Isn’t there a paved road you can roll around on? Street nap!!

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, there’s a paved road in front of my house but cars go on it. My trails are safer to roll over on as long as I stay in the middle.

    You could always photobomb the pictures. You know, just before your person clicks, put your tail or nose in the shot.

      Kimberly, I do that sometimes but I think I need to work on doing it more.

    At least they are pretty flowers not just cacti spines.

      Patricia, the cacti are spiny all year, but once a year for a few days the flowers come out in all their splendor.

    So many dogs can identify with that very last line. Brilliant…you, Bongo – not the flowers…they are getting too much attention as it is

      Karen, you are one of the smartest people I know. Those flowers sure are getting too much attention.
