What’s this?

I look at the garden and there’s this:


What’s happened to the cactus? Maybe they’re Chirstmasized? Maybe that’s their tinfoil hats? No, it’s protection from the cold (but it’s 60 today) in the night. These are not native and are more susceptible to a freeze and the cups are supposed to help. Do they? I don’t really know but the cactus sellers use them on their stock.  Kaci and I aren’t stupid enough to put these “hats” on (after all they’re not genuine tinfoil)-we stay inside soaking up the sun through the windows and watch the bunnies.

  4. Hmmm. Well at least they’re kinda festive! Yeah, stick to the tin foil. More distinguished.


    • I agree. I’d call myself Hedda Hopper but that sounds too much like a rabbit. If I put bananas and pineapples in my hat-I might be a star like Carmen Miranda.

  5. They do look funny Kyla.. Their probably just having a hat party 🙂 You have a wonderful Christmas and a Very happy new year..You can open your presents soon 🙂 xx00xx

  6. I think the cactus were partying and put those lampshades on their heads ~ then they made up the excuse about the weather because they did not want to invite you and Kaci to their New Years party. Kick them out of your yard I say.

  7. In college we were not supposed to have those cups because of what we filled them with. I’m sure the cacti appreciate the love but I think you and Kaci look absolutely beautiful laying in the patch of sunshine.

  9. I’d definitely stick to the tin foil, just to be on the safe side, though the hats do look pretty:-)
