More Fences

On a recent road trip,
I saw a few things I might use for GOOD FENCES, a weekly linky party
operated by our own TEX.

This chain link fence, picture taken as we sped by in the car,
surrounds a well-kept cemetery.

As we traveled on down the road,
I saw something as we went by at 75 miles an hour...
Me......"WAIT....pull over....." 
Mr. Sweet.... "WHAAAT..?"
Me.... "I saw something UNREAL back there...gotta have a picture."
Mr. Sweet...(as he turns the car around...God love him) "What the heck..?"
Me...."I think it was the biggest cactus HAS to be a world record
and I NEED a picture of it."

it was, indeed, a record size cactus with record size blossoms...

and it was made entirely of METAL.

Yep, METAL ART going on right there behind the barbed wire fence.
Isn't it just about the cutest thing, ever.
I love it and sure am glad I got a good photo of it to show YOU.

PS. I just got an email that said "you are falling down on showing us food."
help yourself to my

Bunco COOKIE BAR...:>)

  25. Nice fence shots bj ... that cactus really gets your attention. Good that it was the " thorn-less" kind. Imagine how dangerous they would be.

    Thanks for sharing both though.

  27. That cactus is so very beautiful. The artist is very talented. Love the last shot it made me hungry. B

  29. That cactus ... something memorable for sure.

  30. Beautiful photos, B.J., and the cookies look....delicious! Thank you so much for your kind comment on my blog post and for letting me know about the Smuckers sugar free jam! I have been trying to be careful of what I eat, especially since I had a bout with diverticulitis 3 years ago.


Thanks so much for visiting and commenting.
