Pictures from Phoenix and sometimes from the surrounding cities that make up the "Valley of the Sun"
The flower bud may look similar, but the Egyptian woman in the hieroglyphic is holding the flower stem in her hand. I don't think she would hold a cactus flower that way.Interesting how the ancient Egyptians had a sense for color coordinating the aqua color of the flower bud, the hair piece, and the woman's dress and jewelry.
What beautiful designs in nature!
I love these blossoms. My cacti like this have been blooming quite often this summer. Good eye on seeing the similarities.
Now that you said it I see it, too. I'm glad someone has something blooming in their yard around here. LOL
They do look very exotic!
Mother Nature sure is a wonderful artist.
Cacti blooms are always compellingly lovely and so delicate.
You are definitely right, Sharon! And it never occurred to me...
