Cactus and Cold

This is not art, but a cactus related thought.  It is minus degrees in Western Oklahoma today-and there are cacti there-and there will be cacti there next summer when its hot.  I never really thought about cactus and the cold before.  Extreme heat AND extreme cold-the noble cactus really IS a survivor.

Take care.
In midst of the coldness, you still can come out with this creative thought.
Thanks.

That baffles me. The inside of a cactus is water, so wouldn't you think it would freeze from the inside out and die? Or perhaps the prickly exterior helps it survive. I guess we find lessons in everything, esp nature :)
