The Twelve Days of Cactus (2)

Several years ago, I posted the first version of  my “Twelve Days of Cactus” on GGW. This is an updated (and I hope improved) version. The “first day” of both is the same—that dove in a prickly pear tree is just too good not to use again. Now, see if you don’t agree the other 11 are better. Enjoy!
