Do NOT step on this puppy barefoot!

Interesting cactus fruit shot. Looks like prickly pear. When we lived in Tucson we used to pick these and made jelly. :)

Interesting first two shots..and the last one is it a coal from your woodstove? I wouldn't want to step on it either:)

Nice macros there, 3C. Always like to discover new stuff. I like the fruit guts. Now what are you gonna do with them?

dibear, this one is off a variant of the Christmas cactus (really a succulent) I put mine out for the summer and now and then they set fruit

Ed, thanks!

Lisa, thank you

Achieve1dream, thanks, and thanks for stopping by!

Janice, thanks, I am working up a post for my garden blog on propagating these and I wanted to show the seeds

Shirley, thank you

TCSL, thanks, the last one is a coal that jumped out of the wood stove when I opened the door.

Brenda, thanks

Linda, thank you. It fruited two years ago and I got an amazing number then. I am thinking some of them may bloom this year.

Cloe, thank you

RG, this one is totally benign, just a Christmas cactus variant

Far side, thanks, it is. I opened the stove door one day and a huge log rolled right out. this coal was with it

Steve, I was working on a post I am going to do on propagating Christmas cactus from seed. I actually have already planted all the little dudes in a cookie tray. Hoping for some new plants. I started a mess two years ago and have been giving them away ever since. Still have some for the library plant sale come summer.
