Geocaching is a hobby many folks are involved in. The OFM was an early geocacher but grew away from it after a few years. It was a fun hobby. Today the OFM was out taking pictures and found a Geocache. It was a fun moment with lots of memories of times past. In this next photograph there is a Geocache under the rock on the top of the post.
While we were photographing flowers the OFM noticed that not only the flowers are going nut but the prickly pear cactus is putting on lots of new growth. Check out these new pear parts in progress. Before long these plants will be huge and ferocious.
The OFM managed to find one of those prickly pear pads while slopping around getting flower pictures. He quickly stopped all other activity other than removing spines from his shin bone. It hurt bad enough that he did not even consider taking a few extra moments to grab a picture or two. All energy was focused on removing spines RIGHT NOW. Late this evening as this is being written the puncture wounds are not hurting and only slightly reddened. Kicking prickly pear pads is not a good way of trying to have tooooo much fun.
