Sabra flowers for my sabra daughter

.

Flowers, just in time for Mothers Day!
Even though it is Mothers Day in much of the world today, but not in Israel.
.
Dedicating these sabra blooms to my sabra* daughter, Naomi, the wonderful mother of my grandchildren, in Australia.
.
("Sabra" is a Jewish Israeli born in Israel.  They say that the natives, like the sabra fruit, are prickly on the outside but sweet and tender inside.)

Look like cactus to me. Same family? Happy Mother's Day!

A lovely plant.

I used the name Sabra for a character's name... it's very distinctive.

Lovely post Dina.

It wasn't mother's day in France either yesterday!
