Thanks for all the kind words yesterday, I am feeling quite a bit better today, and I have a more interesting photo!
This is a barrel cactus Christmas tree at La Paloma resort and spa in Tucson. This by no means the only creative desert Christmas tree around - Chandler (near Phoenix) puts up a tumbleweed tree every year!
I wish I had my SLR and flash so I could bounce it and get more even lighting. A wide angle lens would have been nice too, but oh well.
