Cactus Monday - Cactus Spine - Teri Casper

You often see the spines I put all over my cacti so I thought it was time to bring this sketch back.
When I first got interested in cactus I wondered just how the spines grew so I got up close and personal.
This is what a fish hook barrel cactus spine looks like.
Yikes! Looks deadly.


  1. Terrific study, I love the color choice as well.

  2. What a lovely spine Teri! Never really look at it this close - very well done.

  3. No wonder they call it a "fish hook" ! MAkes me wince just looking at it.
