Love Grows Among The Thorns

Sweetie and I took a long walk with Sophie the other day. Talking about the things we would like to do on the property.....when we noticed this....
a heart shaped cactus! It has more than one heart on it as well! To bad I did not notice this during Valentine's day..lol.
I usually dig up any cactus I find on the grounds. If let go, they take over every area and then it is extremely hard to get rid of. However, this is just too cute.... so I will clear the grounds around it and make sort of a bed. I love cactus when it blooms also. So now, what kind of weird plant or even a strange looking animal have you seen around your place? I can't wait to hear!

Aww, a valentine from God. I love it. Weird? How about the child of the earth that we found that time. That was weird! I've seen one since then.

When I was a kid in Florida, is was much the same - if we were playing and fussing with the cactus leaves/branches and tossed them around, a new plant would grow wherever it landed. They grew like crazy!

You have offered up a challenge, I will be on a firm look out for what would be strange. It is rather hard to sit and think of anything. I have lived here all my life so nothing here seems strange to me.

How cool! I had no idea cactus would spread. I can't think of anything strange I've found lately.

How neat is that!! And extra special that you found it on a walk with your sweetie, too!

Daisy said...

What a wonderful find, Kathleen. I really love the title for this post too. You are very clever. Have a wonderful day!

Paula said...

Dear Kathleen,

That is so sweet! I love to find things like that! One time I picked lettuces from my garden, and as I was washing it I saw that one of the leaves had a heart shape nibbled out of the middle of it. Thank you for sharing your find. I love the title you came up with!

Have a blessed day!
Love, Paula
