    Once, back in the seventies, I saw a microscope picture of an Opuntia glochid.  Not only do they have needle sharp points, but the shaft is covered with barbs that point back like the barb on a fishhook.  Once the tip penetrates your skin, the barbs prevent it from coming out,  so it breaks off and keeps working its way deeper in.  The worse part is that you don't get just one.  They grow so close together that you get grabbed by five to ten at a time.  They especially like to grab onto the soft skin on the back of your hand.  The glochids are horrible, but the flowers are worth the irritation.
      Isn't it wonderful how gardeners will spend months propagating plants just in order to have gifts to give when friends come visiting?  Gardening is the most generous hobby in the world.

    You two were the most cutest gardener compilation – you both have such wonderful homes packed with the most gorgeous plants. I would take all of them. I used to have quite a spiky collection as a teenager but didn't bring them here … now a wonderful flamed Schlumbergera followed me home (you can't do wrong with 1.79€ for a young plant COVERED in buds, can you?). What I really love is when people have plants they literally grew up with. I have a Phal at home that is now over 10 years and I hope she will accompany a good few years more. It is the same when you show us your orchid seedlings that are not quite seedlings anymore 😀
    And Lynn is such a positive person – although sometimes a bit overwhelming, but she always reminds me that there is more to life than worries, problems and crisis. She is a dear. But enough blabbering, sorry for the sermon 😀

    Dear Rachel, I wish you and your loved ones the most wonderful and peaceful christmas – and thanks for another gardening year you shared with us.
    Best regards from Munich!

    I enjoyed so much this video! It was so great that you visited Lyn, nice to see you together. Her collection is so fascinating and interesting. Oh, my mother had a cactus similar to the one at 11:58 in the video, and it was just like Lyn said. The little spines got stuck in our fingers and it was so difficult to remove them. 🙂 So nice that Lyn gave you some cacti! They look beautiful!
