Name My New Cactus...
I went to a nursery to look for "the cactus". As I walked around the nursery looking at all the lush green plants, I felt my body relax, and my mind wandered a bit. I love being around plants.
But this shopping mission was for a cactus, so we found my way to the cactus clutch...and oh so many cactus-es (or cacti, depending on your preference).
I was looking for something tall and thin (keep your smart remarks to yourself), but I couldn't help but stop and admire the Barrel cactus (below left) and Prickly Pear cactus (below right).
I then stumbled on a patch of Sago Palms (which aren't really in the palm family at all) but look so leafy and green. We have several Sagos in our yard. There was also a fun area of plants with a bubbling fountain that was so tranquil, I had to stop and gaze into the surface of the water to reflect (pardon the pun).
Eventualy we found "the cactus", although shorter than I had wanted, it was the right variety. So into the Jeep he went, (below left) resting in the comfort of air conditioning for the journey to its new home (below right).
I'm hoping that with our 115 degree summer weather he will grow quickly (for a cactus). So here is where you come in. I'd like to name this cactus (yes I am serious, and no I'm not crazy). He is right next to the front gate, which opens into the front courtyard. It's only right that we name it!
So go ahead, leave a comment with your suggestion for a name. There is no charge to leave comments, so knock yourself out!
