Yet Another Update on Spike, 2012

Spike today, June 2012, 12" above the block
Back in 2007 I purchased a cactus for a tiny patch in my front driveway at the Palm Springs house. At the time, I asked readers for possible names for the cactus, and I chose "Spike" which Bunnygirl recommended. I've enjoyed watching him grow over the years and have had fun posting period updates on his progress 2007, 2008, 2009) It has been a few years since I last shared Spike with you, so here goes. As you compare the differences among photos watch the distance of the top to the stucco block on the post behind it. I just wish I had thought to measure it all these years!
Spike in 2009, maybe 5" above the block
Spike in 2008, just above the stucco block

Spike in 2007, well below the stucco block
