LOST TREASURE revisited
This is from a cactus discovered when we took out an invasive plant last year.
The invader was 15 feet high & quite extensive.
Tomorrow I`ll bring a ladder over to this yard & maybe get some better shots.
Although I have many cactus, this one left me with dozens of almost invisible spines over my hands & fingers.
"Approach With Caution" would be an appropriate sign for this one.
I handle all my other ones carefully, & hardly ever get spines.
I shall be careful with this one from now on.
The large spines you see in the image are not what I`m talking about.
Those ones don`t bother me in the least.
And you all, Please be careful out there.
