Photo: Golden Barrel Cactus
In checking Wikipedia for some information about them, I was surprised to read that they are endangered in the wild, even though they are extremely popular in cultivation. They are native to Mexico.
I also read that the nickname for the plant is "mother-in-law's cushion." My mother-in-law passed away before she would have become my mother-in-law, but I am sure Dave has never had those malevolent thoughts about my mother, although he does enjoy poking fun at her.
This week we have photos of an old cemetery and medieval ruin on the Hill of Slane, Ireland, posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
