They are the curse of sheep farmers here in Australiaand eradication with permission from the local shire councilis permitted.Nice in little pot plants on balconies for high rise persons in cities, wretched in paddocks, and I am sure the same applies in the USA.Thank God for goats, they eat them.B J Hunnicut aka Colin
Thanks for shearing)
Hmmm... We have cactus that look like that in Hawaii.
I speak Greek but I've never heard that word!
That's true about Cacti
I love cacti.
I wouldn't go sprooking that about out in rural, farming areas, especially here in Australia, you might find yourself sitting on one with it firmly in a place where the sun does not shine.Refer to "Al P's" comment and Greek interpretation of the word.Colin
No pokey things here, never knew that at my sea though
Didn't know that. You come up with some interesting facts!!
Kaktos: From the Greek for "Don't sit on these things with no britches on."
hahhaaa...good one, Al
For the life of me, I can't figure out why any one would plant these around their place....
On some Rare occasions, "bj", we are of exactly the same mind.Those who like them, obviously are NOT country peopleand only know of them from a florist/pot plant shop.The flowers on them may be attractive, but sensible or "in the know" persons, are not taken in by a small flower.Colin
That is interesting! These plants are favourites of mine.
I have a little one as a plant,love cactuses!
I didn't know cacti were native to the Americas.
Very interesting. I love cactus ! :)
