Cactus Nursery and a Path Smoother-Outer



Young Cactii, Wrapped, Strapped, Staked and Potted (let's get ready to laaaaandscape!!)


 
 Canal Path Smoother-Outer


Seen along the Arizona Canal, north of Camelback Road. Those trees are a little too regularly spaced, aren't they? Maybe it will look a little less like site elements that just happen to be alive when they plop some of the cactii around. I would take some small balloons filled with paint, toss them one by one from the top of the building in the general direction of the canal, and wherever they happened to land, plant a cactus. I'd move the path smoother-outer to a different spot first so it didn't get all splattered with cactus marker paint. Not the same spot where the potted cactus currently sit, of course. Then you'd just be left with some flattened cactus pieces, and some pseudorandom splotches of paint on the ground between some trees planted by an obsessive landscaper with a very precise ruler. Also, personally, now that I know all about Hammerite, I think I'd get several gallons of yellow and fix up those condos. They have rust something fierce. Get up. Go ride.

  1. If those are young cactii, mine must be very young midget cactii.
    I need some Miracle Grow.

  2. I don't think the MG will make yours this big. Yellow Hammerite might though.
