Cacti on the Hill


I wanted to share pictures of our blooming cacti (and intermittent flowering weeds) on our hill.  These hearty cacti come back no matter how cold or wet it happens to get.  Weeding between the dangerously long thorns is a challenge but I love the mixture of the yellow cactus flowers with the purple weeds.

Thanks! It is a bit unusual, but I love when they bloom in the spring.

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
