This giant flower blooming from a cactus crawling up a wall on a 2 story house caught my eye. i think the yellow and green of the plant against the orange background made it look like a painting.

Fascinating what one finds on the back side of a cactus! Or is this the front side? Whichever, I love the different designs found on these succulents and each one brought a smile to my lips. https://trentsworldblog.wordpress.com/2020/06/29/the-weekly-smile-recap-for-6-22-6-28-2020/
The mouse and his loved one broke social distancing rules when they met in the garden and sneaked a kiss, sans mask. That’s what this looks like to me…what do you think? In this uncropped version it appears he has swept his lover off her feet!
