Good News!!!

Guys, I have some really great news! I found a cactus!! 

Shane and I stopped into Lowe’s to pick up a few odds and ends we needed for some camper projects, and we thought it would be fun to take a gander through the garden department! It’s fun to daydream about a yard full of tropical plants since in Indiana anything tropical is a no go. As we were “ohhh-ing and ahhh-ing” all the tropical pretties, Shane, having read my cactus blog, said “It would be cool if we could find a big cactus!” Right as we were discussing how we probably wouldn’t find one at Lowe’s in Florida since it’s not exactly the right climate we walked straight into this guy…

  
I wanted to do a happy dance! He’s a good 3 feet tall, and I love him! It felt like fate. As we were checking out the cashier said he had never seen a cactus that big at their store before. It made it feel even more fateful. I gave zero thought to the fact that there aren’t a whole lot of places to put a 3ft cactus in a camper. I was determined to make it work until we can take him home to our real house, where he will live happily ever after. I hope…at least that’s the plan. I will be sooooooo mad at myself if I kill this guy!
