An update on my cactus

Some of you may remember I brought a plain old cactus(plucked at a great physical price from the dusty earth) home from Texas a year ago. It flourished and then we thought it had died; but now it is growing again. I tell you, I am not touching that thing again. It can do whatever it wants, I am going to leave it alone now. The thrill of owning a Texas cactus has vanished. But here it is in it's current state, with its newest branches.

We have a cactus "garden" in our yard. We live close to the Gulf, so once when we were walking by the water, my little brother somehow managed to break off the top of a cactus that was growing there. We brougt it home, stuck it in some dirt, and it is now growing great. :) The only problem is if you happen to touch it you get tiny little "stickers" that are hard to see and remove. :( One of the cactus' recently flowered, it was really pretty. :)

Sticklers- ouch! Cacti seem to be very hardy plants.
