“I have learned the difference between a cactus and a caucus. On a cactus, the pricks are on the outside.”

Morris K. Udall (American Congressman, 1922-1998)

TIME:  8:20 PM
PLACE:  DramaQueen’s bedroom
SUBJECT:  Cactus

This is DQ’s cactus, which she purchased from Home Depot last year and named “Bob” <= why?  I don’t know…because she could I guess.  All that green – the wall, pot, cactus flower and cactus rind – is natural.  So are the shadows.  The one on the left is from a piece of MonkeyBoy’s furniture that is temporarily residing in her room while I’m painting his and the one on the right is from a display case that sits next to the cactus on the top of the bookcase.  I like serendipitous surprises when I take pictures.  I couldn't have colored/lit it that way if I tried.

Nice! She's done good at keeping Bob alive and you did great with the green!

Awesome shot and the quote killed me. It's hilarious.

I am envious. I don't have a green thumb when it comes to indoor plants. I had cactuses in college and I managed to kill them too. :(

Bob however, looks well fed and content. ;)
