ocotillos and other such things

 Believe it or not, this is the same ocotillo that I posted just two weeks ago 
(see photo below)!! One night last weekend, the leaf-cutter ants stripped it bare. 
I rather wish I had seen them do it, because it was clearly a very efficient job. 

Anyway, I am feeling somewhat like this ocotillo. After recovering 
from last week's illness, I came down with a sinus infection that wiped 
me out for this week. Between all that and the sicknesses of my 
familial peeps, it seems the leaf-cutters have gotten to us. 
But we're still firmly rooted, just waiting for our leaves to grow back in.
