Today’s photo was taken in our back yard of the only barrel cactus that is left.  When we moved in the back yard had quite a few but with our two wonderful doggies, we had to move some out.  This particular one is getting fruit and blooming again.  It sits behind a little fence to keep the dogs out and I had to take the photo at an angle.  If one of these barbs gets into ANYTHING, it’s really tough to remove them.  You can see the hooks at the ends.  Mother Nature is pretty creative, isn’t she?  Another one of those “look but don’t touch” desert things.  Namaste’

    1. Now that’s a good question. I kind of doubt it but don’t want to find out first hand. These barrel cacti are everywhere around southern Arizona. I sometimes wonder how the rabbits, running from the coyotes, manage to miss these menacing barbs. I call them “rascal rabbits.” They’re so cute!
