Since the last post on plants growing in the strangest places, Joy and I went out for a neighborhood walk. Maybe my eye is now trained to spot prickly pear cactus growing on saguaro cactus, but guess what, I saw another one — I couldn’t believe it! Two in two days!

Maybe it’s not that unusual, but two in two days — maybe I need to consult with some experts. I did a Google search and the only thing near this kind of sighting is my previous posting. The strange just gets stranger!

Plants have been known to grow in some of the strangest places. Many people may thank of plants out-of-place (whatever that is) as a weed. But, when you think about it, plants don’t have the option of moving to a better place — it’s make the best of it, or perish!

Obviously, this prickly pear cactus is trying to make the best of being in the arms of a giant saguaro cactus. So far, the conditions have been right — may the force of nature be with you.
