Yes, I have added a new blog, Cactus Are Cool, devoted exclusively to the subject of cactus and succulents. I will post a story once a week and add pictures to the section called Blooming Now when something is blooming, which lately, is something new every day, and add tips on caring for cactus under Cactus Care. I enjoy my cactus so much that this seemed like the logical next step. I may still have stories and pictures about cactus here in The Bright Lights of Muleshoe from time to time, but Cactus Are Cool will be nothing but cactus-related topics. Even if you think you are not interested in cactus, I hope you will give it a try. I think you will be pleasantly surprised at what you learn about them and appreciate their uniqueness even if you still don’t care to try to grow one. I will have to warn you, though, they are seductive and addictive. My tech support person and I are still working out the bugs, so bear with me. It may take a little time for it to fulfill my expectations. But cactus and succulents have a way of growing slowly, just sitting there, but then suddenly you come in one day to find they have magically grown and even have a bloom to share that you didn’t expect. So I am hoping that the blog may do the same thing- sit there for a while, and then suddenly become a font of information and pretty pictures. I may know a lot about cactus, but I don’t know that much about computers, and therein lies the problem. So check the blog from time to time at or click on the link Cactus Are Cool down there under About Me on the right hand side of this blog and be amazed and informed. It will be fun. Really. IMG_3988
