About 18 years ago the peeps planted a cute little cactus behind the pool. They made sure it was fertilized when it was hungry and watered it when it was thirsty. It grew and is now giving the peeps the bird and I ought to know about birds. That’s gratitude for you.

  1. That’s quite the cactus, Kismet. Perhaps it’s just trying to limit shade on the pool area. 🌵

  2. You crack me up, Kistmet. I do love you though.

    Have a fabulous day day. ♥

  3. That thing is TALL! Too bad it’s not grateful for all the care it’s received but you can’t trust a cactus can ya.

    Hugs, Teddy

  4. Well you fertilized it!
    Sweet William The Scot

  5. Must be pretty strong to be so tall and slender and withstand the winds. I thought you only landscaped with jumping cholla but I guess I was mistaken.

  6. That looks like an oasis in a desert, even if the cactus is “flipping the bird.” Better be careful, Kissie. XOX Xena and Lucy
