     This is no jungle cactus, but there is no desert cactus board, so here it goes.

     You gotta take the bad with the good!  Actually, the spines on this cactus are not very bad.  Nowhere near as bad as an opuntia.
     By the way, are we, along with Mel, the only people left on this forum?  This forum and the clivia forum are dead.

Hi Mike :)

Some members are still "lurking" in the wings  :D.....but it seems like it's a case of life being too much of a rush these days and  fb and the like  have stolen others away?

 I happen to be one of the lucky ones - on retirement - and have nothing to do ALL day......Oh my word - I wish!  No-one warned me that once you retire the 24 hour day becomes a 12 hour day!

But it's great when a post does pop up -  you do get used to talking to yourself here.....
