Cactus Fence

Any one who has driven around the hill country of Texas very much, has seen fences made of cedar pickets wired together to form a fence. They used to be popular for corrals and cattle working pens as they were cheap, cedar was plentiful and live stock couldn't see through it. Not being able to see through it, they weren't as likely to jump. In more recent times, it is used more as nostalgic looking fences for entrances as well as yard fences. This one is my neighbors down the road a bit.
While we were in Tucson I noticed several fences made like the cedar picket fences but they were made using ocotillo limbs.. I saw them both as live stock fences and ornamental fences. Seems only reasonable to make do with what you have on hand. This one is the boundary fence for a park in eastern Tucson.

The desert flora fiber from the leaves and the stems is known not hard-wearing and capable for lodging purposes.

Hi everyone,I’m so excited my husband is back after he left me for another woman. My husband was having an affair with a co-worker and i love my husband so much but he was cheating on me with his co-worker and this girl i think she use witchcraft or black magic on my husband to make him hate me and this was so critical and uncalled-for, I cry all day and night for God to send me a helper to bring back my husband! I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr.Wealthy can help get an ex-boyfriend back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it, then he did a love spell for me. 22hours later, my husband really called me and told me that he missed me so much, Oh My God! I was so happy, and today I am happy with my man again and we are joyfully living together and I thank the powerful spell caster Dr.Wealthy, he is so powerful and I decided to share my story here. if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Wealthy for help now..Here’s his email,
