Cactus Revisited

Remember when I wrote about the poor little cactus in our front yard that kept getting kicked over by some school kids? I finally left it in the gutter (couldn't bear to throw it away) and bought another cactus that didn't look as interesting. This morning I was outside and saw that, in the gutter, this little cactus ear grew two more ears this spring. In the gutter.

I rescued it and put it in a pot on the back porch.

What a resilient thing!

There's a Bible lesson in there ... being abused, tossed away, and still growing, then being rescued ... Hmmm ... sounds kind of old testament to me. :) What an awesome plant! Sounds like something even I could keep alive.

Cactii are tough plants! Not wimpy like strawberries.
