Let's See Some More Cactus

We have low growing ruffely ones.  For those of you that aren't familiar with cactus, you see those brownish bumps, those are thousands of tiny stickers.  I can't call them thorns because they don't stick out, but if you brush up against them with your skin they get into your skin and they are very hard to remove, because you can't see them.  One way to remove them if they're in you fingers is to run your fingers through your hair and that helps, sometimes.

More highly visible invisible stickers.

Some grow tall.

With hair.

This one has very few spines.

This one has tons of spines.

And a dead flower from last year.

This one twists as it grows.

This one doesn't twist.

Here we have a whole family.

Two friends growing together.

Cactus love rocks.

And there are trees as well.

Then we have the cactus that, like me, do their own thing.

Birds use cactus as a safe place to build nests.

That's all for now, thanks for reading.

Sometimes it's a good idea to look to the sky, you never know what you'll see.
