Throwback Thursday: Holiday Cactus

 

Holliday Cactus in the California desert

 

We were in the California desert, in Indio, for New Years back in 2012 visiting a good friend. We had a good time walking around the neighborhood to enjoy the holiday decorations.

 

This holiday cactus in particular caught our eye. Must have been a challenge to decorate, don'tcha think?!

Some places you need gloves on because it is cold but in this case I think they would need  gloves for a more prickly reason.  Cute too.

Hi Laura Cerrano  I've seen a bunch myself. I always enjoy the creativity people share in their holiday decorating.

Have a wonderful weekend, and holiday season.

Kind of looks like a court jester's hat and I think it is also a creative holiday idea.

HI Jeff Dowler, CRS - This is decorated nicely! Perfect for the desert. But that is not my favorite type of cactus, exactly because of the reason you might be thinking. Happy weekend.

Hi Nina Hollander 

I thought it was such fun to see. Seems to me I was in my car at the time and I just had to stop and grab a photo.

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS I can't imagine how they accomplished that without destroying themselves and/or the plant...aren't there thorns on those?

Jeff my brother lives in Tucson, Arizona and a couple of years ago he sent us a Christmas card of him wearing shorts and standing in front of a cactus decorated similar to that one

It was something new to me as well William Feela 

Wayne Martin  No doubt it was tricky...but they probably do so every year and have gotten the hang of it!
