So my grandmother asked me to take some pictures of our cactus we have growing in the backyard. We started this thing several years back with just one section of cactus.




Here are a couple of bees I saw doing thier thing.


Someone should page Mr. Arachnaphobe.


Here are some pictures of some of our animals.

Kill the fuckin' spider. I wouldn't be able to live down south with out shooting a few a day. Thats why God made pellet guns and .22short.

I had one close to that size growing in a pot here in PA. Every summer I'd get a buddy and I'd lash it to a board so we could carry it outside then reverse the process for the winter. Those things are heavier than they look! Anyway, it finally got so big we couldn't get it through the doors any longer, so I planted it outside and crossed my fingers... It didn't make the first winter. Oh well, I have another that I started from a couple of ears taken from the old plant. Another decade or so and it'll be just as nice.

I love cactus flowers and yours is a great example. Have you ever eaten any of the pears?

Hmmm. A plant/arachnid/insect/dog/cat post. Original!

i have them growing like that on my property too. gasoline and a match will take care of the needles. when it is done burning, bust off what is left of the body and make sure you dump gas around the root area or it will grow back. persistant bastards they are though. it may take a few years to rid your property.

It's a harmless Garden Spider. Their webs are very pretty, and the spiders come as close to pretty as a spider can. They also eat lots of bugs.
