This is a Claret Cup Cactus flower for Cactus Monday.
I found this plant while we were in Glen Rose at the rmmga D/FW-8 gathering. I was told it is a spiderwort, and if you get it in your yard it takes over.
I'll get some photos of in a day or two of our weekend with Archbishop Venables, Primate of the Southern Cone of the Anglican Communion.
We went to Glen Rose, Texas, about 2 pm on Friday for the gathering. Then about 10 pm we drove to Bedford, Texas, and spent the night. We got up at 7 am Saturday, and after a meal at La Peep, we went to St. Vincent's Cathedral for the convocation with the Bishop. We ate lunch there and went back to Glen Rose where we stayed until about 11 pm. Then we came home. Sunday we went to church. Then Raf had training for Lay Eucharistic Visitor, and then we went to Fort Worth to hear the Archbishop again at the Evensong at St. Andrew's.
Today the roofers woke us up about 7. They had begun yesterday, and at this writing they are finishing up. We had pancakes for breakfast and then had to go to WalMart for groceries. Remember that's our only grocery store...ugh!!! I want to go to Central Market SOON!
I am going to fix fried chicken, salad, and lima beans for supper.
Today was also Raf's mother's birthday. Tomorrow is Joey's 19th birthday and Kathi and Steve's anniversary, and Thursday is Darrell and Carolyn's anniversary. The 19th is Christi's 38th birthday. So, May is a busy month.
