Very beautiful! Have you many fairies that need dusting? I am sure they would appreciate being cleaned by such a duster.

mary, jimmy, endment, rd, tdharma, chiefbiscuit - thank you.

ow - I hope there are fairies around here; don't know how dusty they get, though.

lené - There's much celebration around us - fiestas, mariachis; it's wonderful to learn about the Chicano culture and to be able to share in it.

chancy - I'm glad you saw the celebration in the flower. It's a special day for many of Tucson's people and I wanted to honour it.

Gorgeous!

I agree. I miss that culture living up here. :)

Pam in Tucson said...

homebird - thank you! and thanks again for stopping by.

lené- I guess we all miss the cultures we move away from. We used to live on Centre St. in Manhattan - I miss the festas of Little Italy and the Chinese Festivals, too. But I do love the Latino culture and customs that are so prevalent in Tucson.
