Wild cactus blooming here

Post by lucky1 »

I try to avoid these areas when the dog and I are hiking.

Not full bloom yet, but very pretty.
The dog doesn't think so :lol: :lol:

Here's to all the global warming pushers, may your winters be -30 below and four feet of snow in your driveway. Because I want you happy.

Thanks folks!

Nice to know what it is called, thank you.

Would happily trade my wild cactus desert property for yours where Trachies are naturalizing. :lol: :lol:
Too hot, dry, windy here for palms.
Unless they're under the leaking eaves :lol:
