Wallflower…..Its Own Beauty

Wall Flower

Wallflower

Tucked away, not quite perfect. One would normally pass on it, toward the perfect petals, color, texture of a more perfect rose. Yet it is beautiful in its own unique way. Nestled near the thorns, it deserved more than a glance and passing by.

Cacti & Thorns (Spines): Why?

Why does a cactus have those dangerous spines? At first consideration, it seems probable a cactus’ spines are there to redirect my shins or other exposed body parts. But apparently the spines are crucial to the warding off of water seeking predators as well as important in the transpiration of the plant. Spines are like leaves to the cactus. More here about the cactus spines and cactus in general.
