Quote It Saturday

The Cactus Song by The Lads

"There are five cacti on my windowsill And a bonsai tree, living happily together In any kind of weather they get along.
There are five cacti on my windowsill And a bonsai tree, living happily together In any kind of weather they get along.
At first, I was surprised To see how they were faring With all those shapes and sizes You'd think there'd be some staring But they didn't seem to mind That some were much too tall No condescending looks were cast on those that were still small.

You won't get these prickly friends of mine
Comparing shades of green
Or having silly arguments
About differences between them
On the whole they're quite accepting
When all is said and done
They're a group of individuals reaching out towards the sun."

Orchid Cactus: LadyD Books


My "epie" taken at dusk from the garden. A delightful color, I would say. The bloom from just an ordinary cactus is quite extraordinary.

ep·i·phyl·lum

Any of several mostly epiphytic cacti of the genus Epiphyllum,  native to tropical America, having large, fragrant white flowers. (other colors, too.)

Also called orchid cactus.
