Rainy Cactus Monday

I bought this cactus at the flea market for 8 bucks. I thought it was so cool. I have some rat tail cactus but I am not sure if this is another variety or something else. The lady I bought it from did not know what it was called.
Anyhow, I think it looks cool and it is doing well in the spot I put it(-:
Happy Cactus Monday to everyone!

I also wanted to mention that it is raining here(-: I can't remember the last time it rained but I think it was sometime in May. We are so happy to see rain drops again!!!!

I had one like that and someone said it was a "Monkey Tail." It was wild and I loved it!

Yay for the rain in CA!

Neat cactus. It started out raining here in MS again. Suppose to rain more today and tomorrow.

But, we've had plenty the past couple of weeks. Need for it to quit for a while.


Judy Butler said...

Great cactus, HCM. Yes, rain is so wonderful. Judy

Hi Teri,

Hi studio lolo,

Hi Japanese Redneck,
Thank You! We are in desperate need of rain and lots of it. This was just a little bit and it is suppose to get back up to100+ by the weekend)-:

Hi Judy,
Thank You(-:

It hasn't stopped raining here for days! That cactus is beautiful. and sort of fits in with Halloween somehow. Sort of "spooky."

Evelyn Howard said...

Monkey tail is a great name! I thought of dreadlocks when I saw the photo! 8 bucks - seems like a good buy!

Have a good week.

Julie said...

It is hard to tell what the plant looks like up is so awesome! I like the name Monkey Tail!!! LOL.

Popped in from Japenese Redneck to say hi...that cactus looks like an octopus! How neat!

Lola said...

Cool looking plant.
I'm glad you are getting some much needed {I'm sure} rain.

wiseacre said...

I see dreadlocks too. Glad to hear you're getting some needed rain otherwise I would have wondered how you were making those tiny bubbles

Hi Brenda,
Thanks! It is a cool cactus. It is probably four feet long! I can't wait to see it bloom next year(-:

Hi Evelyn Howard,
Thank for stopping by!
It does look like dreadlocks(-:

Hi Julie,
If you click on the picture it will get bigger(-: It has semi-soft hairy like needles covering the outside. I can pick them up without gloves carefully(-:

Hi Blonde Duck,
Thanks for stopping by(-:

Hi Lola,
Thanks! It did rain lightly all day! It was awesome. Now its hot again though)-:

Hi WiseAcre,
Finally someone noticed those awesome bubbles(-: It was raining when I took that picture. I had to hold the umbrella over the camera(-:
It was a wonderful rainy day! Now its back up in the 90's and 100 by Saturday so they say! Guess that means off to the lake(-:
