Annual Cactus Roundup

Can you believe March is almost over? We're seeing an early cactus bloom, but it's not as good as it has been in years past. The ocotillos have been particularly disappointing. Usually the ribs leaf out and become green and lush, but not so much this year. This plant has pretty good blooms, but no leaves.

Yellow cactus.

Another one of the night bloomers, whose name I do not know.

Ken was here today, and worked on the hydro hot, replaced the spring on the bedroom slide topper and mounted the new gravel guard. It was a warm day to be working on the RV. We think the spring on the main salon slide topper is failing, we're hoping to get that replaced before leaving for the summer. So, there's that and re-riveting the slide lock cover on the forward driver's side slide.
Plans for May are firming up. We have reservations May 13 - 31 in Oroville, CA, which is near Grass Valley, which has road and mountain biking opportunities. We wanted to be closer to Grass Valley than we are, but couldn't find an RV park with 50 amp. If we like it there, we'll scout the area RV parks for goodness. The first half of the month is still in flux.
