 i’m growing to love cacti…

some of them have fruit, too.

yes, they’re prickly.  you can’t just pluck one and give it to your sweety.  and no, there are no luscious petals like roses have.

they aren’t romantic, but they’re unique, whimsical, dangerous, functional and beautiful…in there own scratchy way.

I love cacti too. I would rip out all out other plants and replace them with cacti if my wife would let me! (At least in the spots where the dogs wouldn’t run into them. We had to move some cacti planters around to the front yard not long ago because Dennis kept crashing into them while playing fetch!)
