Black thumb-ers unite! Despite my best efforts things are a-bloom here at casa de monkeys always look. The yard is full of color. Check back next week... certainly something by then will have been killed by lack of water and total neglect.
We had a ton of cactus that needed some extra loving so I created the cactus infirmary. Most of our patients are doing well and back on the road to recovery. Their aliments ranged from lack of water (most common complaint) to the usually rare but seemingly more common "Dog Foot Crush" and "Total Animation By Killer Tail Wags". The new infirmary is far out of reach of both tails and paws. So if the lack of water infections doesn't return, we should have a crop of healthy happy cacti or as I like to use the vernacular cactuses.
