Because what's better than cacti on Thursday? Cacti on Thursday and Friday. *

I scrolled through every cactus image on this set to find out where the nursury was (pleaseletitbeinsoutherncaliforniapleaseletitbeinsoutherncalifornia). Melbourne. Sad face.

*Unless of course you don't like cacti. Like my best friend used to not. (She was forced to dig up cacti while in boarding school in tucson as a teenager. YIKES. She like the desert now though.)

  1. I don't like cacti, they creep me out. They're phallic AND spiky. A combination that is kind of wrong.

  4. Love it.

    I used to have cacti aversion. I think it was more like cacti fatigue, because my parents literally NEVER took us anywhere on vacation except the desert. Now that I can mix my vacations up a bit, I love them again.

  6. love 'em; they're gorgeous, and neither my cats nor i seem able to kill them. (they try, though. oh, how they try.) have you ever heard of cactus rustlers - that is, the people out in AZ who try to uproot the big old saguaros and sell them? i know that's a serious business, since they're super-old, worth a fortune, and protected by law, but the phrase makes me giggle. "cactus rustler." like hamburglar.
