    Im still staring at spikes (at least for the ones at home). Its like watching a pot of water for it to boil . Fortunately, working for a nursery, I get to work with several plants up for adoption so I can focus on finding them a good home (best job ever!!!). Keeps me occupied during the day but at night.....back to my spikes.
