Okay, I will be perfectly honest with you, I am not necessarily a great lover of cactus.
But I like people and I play well with others.
So I decided to jump on the band wagon and join Cactus Monday
And this is a photo of the only cactus I know of in our town
which I shot this morning on my way to work.
Luckily for me I got to stop at a red light in time to open my window...get my camera out..
and shoot through the rain to capture these tall cactus plants. I do not know their name, but perhaps someone else in the group can enlighten me.
I do know that some time during the year they put out small roundish fruit that people come by
with bags and pick off to take home to eat.
I do not know if they are the same fruit on cactus
I saw in Israel that they called "Sabra" after the native Israeli's, who are known to be
prickly on the outside but sweet on the inside!
You tell me.
Now I will have to keep my eyes peeled for my next cactus find! On my way home tonight I got this wonderful show of birds that flew
in a flock towards my car, flew away and back again!
They do this at this particular intersection often!
I'm glad I was camera ready!
