Cactus Grows Anywhere

Notice the cactus growing on the fence. Remember the picture of cactus growing on a house near our neighborhood? Not unusual to see it growing in the fork of a tree. Doesn't take much dirt or water. Also notice the tiny wild flowers through the fence. Someone went to a lot of trouble building the unusual fence. Some pretty days, looking forward to spring and wild flowers.

Nature always amazes me. Funny plants like this volunteer and I cannot buy one to live. hahahaha

I like the fence design. That was once the leading fence design on the mid east coast, then Kentucky & Ill when Lincoln split them rails. SMILE!

Cactus is my kind of plant, They grow under any condition and live on and on without water. A very peacful picture.

I can never remember what those fences are called. They used to be really popular in Arizona around ranch-style homes.

Great fence and nature finds unique places to grow. Lovely photo.

A good heavy fence with so much beauty. I'm a Texas girl too. I always enjoy meeting my home state blogging friends..

Cacti are amazing how they can adapt themselves to growing in difficult places.

I love seeing plants growing in strange places...there used to be a small tree growing in the top of one of the old buildings down town, and stupid me, I never took a photo of it. It is now gone.

Here in Alabama it would be fern or a trailing vine. Nice fence!

Pauline Woodcock said...

Nice, unusual fence - I like it.

Nice fence but I would like the shot of the cacti a little bit greater.

what a wonderful find...the fence and the cactus growing out of it. You would wonder how it survives
