When fog settles in overnight, it freezes and forms hoarfrost, highlighting cactus spines.

Hey Dave, That is great and kind of funny. I went out yesterday to take some pics of my 2 year old Cylindropuntia imbricata in 1 gallon pots under the snow. Here is a link to my pics. Yours is truly a great picture.

As usual, a very well executed photo Dave! I wonder if Cylindropuntia versicolor would fare the same?

It's been very cold here, currently -20F.

It's doubtful that Cylindropuntia versicolor would survive in these conditions. It's native to the Sonoran Desert in Arizona and Mexico.

Best regards,

Dave,
-20F!!! We usually don't get that cold till mid January. Any other pics of plants in the cold? Expecting it to get up to around 40F by Sunday here.

Dave,
Boy, I thought it was cold here! We're expecting a few inches of the white stuff tonight, brrr!

Thanks for the tip on C. versicolor. I figured as much. Some of them are quite tough!
