I do recall several times I have been lucky enough to see the spring bloom in the desert. It is awesome though gone far to quickly. I water colored this image with Distress Ink using the exact same inks as I used previously for the color challenge earlier this week. I added a little Spiced Marmalade for the bloom centers. Now that I have faced my anxiety for coloring cactus I will be happy to use this image a lot...I love it!
