This cactus plant grows here outisde all year long and seems to be doing just fine, even though I thought it only grew in the desert.

Where in Wisconsin are you? I will be travelling to Milwaukee over the holiday weekend (got family in Waukeshaw). Will be taking my DL on the trip. Have also visited La Crosse and the sorrounding areas as well. Nice part of the country with a nice variety of land forms, lakes, rivers, etc--a photographer's haven! Jay

I am in the North West portion of the state, just came back from Milwaukee last week after first driving to Columbus, then Canada and back to Milwaukee.

Milwaukee is OK but not great for photography, the lake front is nice, River Walk is fun in the evening, the Zoo is OK but not great. Downtown is kind of depressed compared to other large cities, north to Cedarburg gets nice and on up to Door County gets better for photography.

West of Madison (60 miles West of Milwaukee) on highway 14 it gets really nice, with Spring Green and the Wisconsin River Valley and on up to House on the Rock between Spring Green and Dodgeville.

Enjoy,
Tom

We have the same cactus growing in our garden ... been there for at least 10 years. Always looks pretty beat up after the snow melts off but it does great once the weather warms up.

Cheers, Mike

Our cactus opened in flower yesterday ... bright yellow blossoms, but they only last a day.

Cheers, Mike
