Cactus, Revisited.

Remember how the cactus fell during the storm? You can revisit it here and here and even here .
Remember how I said that I wanted to save the rods or ribs or whatever they are called?
Here we go:
Keep in mind that this is simply one chunk of the cactus. It was over two stories tall, so Jeremiah cut it into smaller pieces. We let it sit in the front yard for awhile (The neighbors? They love us.) and then sawed chunks of the skin/whatever off to expose the ribs. Eventually it looked like these pictures. We moved everything to the backyard. Jeremiah will sand them down and they will become ART. In the house. I'm super excited.
Dig it? I think it will look super cool. We've got a bunch, so we'll have to design something great.
