AZ - The Cactus Ranch

There is the coolest place near my In Laws - called

The Cactus Ranch

Pretty cool right?   My MIL had purchased some trees from there, so she took us back!

We were all impressed - I think they had a cactus of EVERY variety there.
The lady who owns it was so much fun, she took us in their green houses, and really acted as a tour guide.  

There's my men 
All in Shorts in March!!
That is not common in our part of CO!

In the back of the ranch
We found this!
It's a water tank  - but wow -does it fit in well!

and this one (below)
That's the Jumping Cactus
They are called Cholla  ( the ll is a y sound)

And me and the boys

Just so you know
There are A LOT more photos from AZ

Some of them I am putting on my Photography blog
I sort of let it slide away

How interesting. They must be rather difficult to transplant though, don't ya think?

That's why I couldn't stay in CO--the shorts come out in March for me and I couldn't do that in CO!! Looks like even in AZ you didn't have shorts on. The Cactus Ranch looks like a super cool place.

I agree with the comment above, if you buy one of these prickly guys do they come plant it for you? They are beautiful but look painful to plant!!

We're definitely not wearing shorts in Ohio! And no cacti here. It is beautiful. Everyone looks nice and warm.
