The Luck Of Double Sevens

Yesterday was my mother's 77th birthday.  Lucky double sevens!!  I invited the family over and put on a big spread, much of which was devoured.  

Much of the day was overcast and it rained quite a bit, which was really a gift to me.  It also cooled everything down, if you consider 88 degrees cool.  

While it was raining I took a picture of this little barrel cactus.  The rain must have brought out the color - the bright green flesh, the fuschia spines, and the yellow flower. Wetting it down knocked the dust off of it.  Looking at it today, the only thing on it with color is the flower, the rest looks like a drab greenish-brown blob.

The rain does wonders.
