Plants are Amazing

I don't really understand how cacti work, or why they do what they do.  But remember this photo from August 1st?
The poor thing just lay down one day.  We didn't know what to do, but I figured it had just become top heavy, and needed to create more support for itself.  Well that wasn't the case in the end, because as you can see from the photo below...
it decided to stand up again. (!!??!!)  It took a few days to get there, but it is all the way up again.  So.... what is that all about?  Was it sleepy?  In need of a wee lie down to regain some of its old vigor? Hmmm.


  1. Very mysterious! But glad it came back to attention.

  2. Mysterious yes. Because then it lay down in the other direction! And now it is trying to stand up again, and it is finding it kind of tough. Weird.

  3. Is there alcohol involved?
