Wear top hats, of course.
On this particular day, I was on my way back from the family outing in Cave Creek, Arizona. It was very cloudy and rainy that day but when we arrived at the Veteran's Cemetery, the sun was shining through the clouds. I thought that was quite fitting. We then went to lunch at a cowboy restaurant in Cave Creek and by that time, it had begun raining again. We all decided to head home instead of driving around looking at property.
It had begun hailing on my drive back but I had to stop at this cactus nursery to get this photo. Hopefully, you can see white specks in the photo. That's the hail. Naturally, I stayed in the car.
There are some people who put styrofoam cups on top of their cactus in the winter in case of a freeze. This really doesn't happen often but the cups are kept on for a couple of months. A freeze can kill some plants and will cause frost bite on cactus. I've never done this but I no longer live in a house with desert landscaping. But even when I did, I never did this because I think it's very wasteful and just puts more styrofoam in the landfills. Styrofoam is not biodegradeble. All of the cactus nurseries do this because they can't sell a damaged cactus.
