Cactus

Winter came to the north. It has been freezing outside these past few days. The coldness has crept everywhere and is keeping us as a hostage, forced to stay inside. Cactus

Past few winters have been mild but this one seems to have found itself and is biting us hard. We do not have much snow and low temperatures like we are having now are going to freeze the ground and go deep to the soil. Worried that it will wipe out the most delegate and fragile flowers from the garden.

Nothing we can do but wait for the spring to show us which ones have survived.

Since there is not much to do outside I decided to make an easy terrarium. Just quickly went outside and bought a cactus.

Selecting the one was not difficult. After managing to have few spikes in my fingers ended up selecting the one without them.

My choice seems to be a good one. At least it looks nice and my fingers do not hurt.

PS. Wrapping many layers of paper around the plant helps you to move it even if it is well below the freezing point outside.
