Sometime It Doesn't Pay To Be Nice
While John was feeding the cows this afternoon I checked behind a cactus plant where I left some Blueberries for the little cottontail rabbit. Nothing left but the plastic container with a rock to hold it down in the wind. I've seen the rabbit eating pear apples off the cactus but there wasn't any close to the ground so I decided to pick the three dark purple one up high and put them in the container for the little rabbit to find. OUCH! When will I learn to use gloves no matter what I am doing near cacti? They are light tiny soft thorns which blend in with my light skin. I don't know I have them in my fingers until I touch something and it hurts. I'm pick, pick, picking with my fingernails trying to remove them. When I got home I use my glasses, a magnifing glass, and a bright light and pick, pick, pick with the tweezers. It seems I got most of them out but will probably find some for a few days yet. I hope that little rabbit enjoys those pear apples.
