The organ is playing a sad, sad song..

Somebody stole a ton of the Organ Pipe Cactus before we moved in. We noticed some laying on the driveway a few weeks ago and wondered what had hap'd... then our neighbor told us that she saw a truck there in the middle of the night and that they are worth money. If you cut the cactus and let it sit for 2 weeks you can re-plant them and they will root. She said they just sold some for $500.. We rescued two so far and have about 6 more to pick up off the ground and re-plant

I think my roomate counted over 25 missing.

Need to rescue that one on the ground still
poor thing...

they pushed some off the driveway That's another pic of our backyard ;o)
two happy rescued cacti

I love driving down the driveway.. it's a fun little hill.

This is crazy! Too bad the neighbor lady didn't have some rock salt shells for those lovely people.
