Danger in the nite
Happy Cactus Monday everyone. This cactus is called Austrocylindropuntia subulata. Yeah I know really big name. I just call it the biggest most dangerous cactus I have. It has been raining a lot here lately and last night taking the garbage out I brushed up against it. The rain has soaked the ground so much that the plant has leaned toward the sidewalk. Ouch! Not a bad poke though! You can't tell from the picture but this plant is huge and some of the spines are about 4 inches long. So I took a flashed nite pic and this is what I got. Better than I thought it would turn out. So now I will have to prop this thing up somehow. Hmmmm!
On another note, yesterday I went to Sam's club. It was in the evening I was getting tired. But they had a whole bunch of amazing pots for sale. I couldn't believe the prices! Some were shaped very interesting. But this one was shaped like a huge fish. If you can imagine it was kind of bent in half with it's tail facing up and the body and face with mouth wide open facing up. The body and the mouth were the pot. It was the only one. But I was tired and it was heavy so I didn't get it. Last night I dreamed about it. I jumped out of bed this morning to go get it and a couple of others. Wouldn't you know that it was gone. I even had visualized a great place for it. I got the ones below and asked an employee if another Sam's had them. Nope...it's a road show??! But they would be back to replenish. Yeah! I will call everyday and when comes in I will have them hold one and go get it! Ahhh!
Here is the cool chicken I got! It cost about $21.50. Can't wait to plant it with succulents! This is a lesson on when you see something that awesome and cheap you better get it!
This one cost about $19.50. It has a wire stand already attached. What a great deal. So I will be calling Sam's everyday until they come in. They are going to be so sick of me! LOL
