Snow? I melt snow regularly these days to water some plants. We've got lot of it. Get the most of your winter, guys. :D

Not a best photo, just a photo. This one fell off mom. Potted it up and its been living on a Texas 8b arbored patio ever since. This is its second winter and “fingers crossed” this will be its second full summer. There was a good sized pup on top for a good year but it got knocked off early this winter. Unfortunately I had to zoom in quite a bit editing the photo size on my iPad to get within limits, the paper spines are the real show. 3.5inch porous clay pot, Lechuza Pon soil, also occasional distilled water and R.O water (if that means anything). On another pup from the same mom, in constant full sun the spines are darker.

Not got as many plant related photographs, I don't tend to do photography that much these days as I sold the majority of my expensive gear a few years back now and currently just own a Pentax K3 and a couple of El-cheapo old lenses and an ultra wide that I use whenever I'm in the mood for to photograph. But here is a few older images :)

I like bees as long as they don't sting me.

And I love honey.
