THE COLOR OF CACTUS – Marilyn Armstrong

What color is YOUR cactus?


It’s a pink world. In Arizona, even the cactus are pink. Or maybe they are merely washed in the blood of tourists?

  1. Never mess with a cactus that’s so flushed with anger that it’s turned pink….

  2. PINK? Cactus? Wow. I knew some of the flowers of the cactus were pink, but not the plant! Another thing I can say I learned today….along with something about men peeing along fence lines, which does not need to be shared here..and the fact that apparently some foxes poop green poo. What a day!

  3. We have that kind in Alberta too. At least they look the same?
    But they aren’t pink.

    • Most of these are green, but THESE few were really pink. That’s why I took their picture. Maybe it was something about the light, but man, they were big and nasty.

      • I used to go up into the Badlands of Drumheller with our dog Kim. (I had a knack for finding fossils, dinosaur bones and petrified wood -had an outstanding collection). Anyway, Kim and I met Mister Prickly Pear cactus on several occasions. Those spines have barbs on them and can go right through your shoes! No fun! And poor Kim – I had to pull them out of his paws on several occasions.
        But what fun we had!

        • We got tangled in the “jumping cactus.” They hooked onto a piece of clothing and no matter what you did, they wouldn’t let go. Eventually, we learned to be very careful around them, though you couldn’t always see them. Sometimes, they crept along the ground.

      • Might be terrifying but fabulous for the challenge!

    • Whenever I hear Alberta, I think of Ian & Sylvia’s classic, “Four Strong Winds”. One of my favorites. Sure you know it.
      Now I have forgotten the beloved lyrics (senior moments) “…..Four strong winds that blow lonely……….by the time I get to Alberta, weather’s dry this time of year…..” Darn, I lost all the rest of the lyrics.
