Ariocarpus fissuratus


Got my property tax bills in the mail today.  Without going into numbers...here I pay per year what I paid every 10 days for my place in upstate NY.  To celebrate, I went and walked a 5 acre tract I have about a mile north of TFL. Found several living rock cactus blooms  I also have 25 acres in the Solitario that I haven't even seen yet.  The only reason I bought it was because someone was desperate to sell...for only $50/acre.  78,92,50,0,B,0

I know what you mean about the taxes out here. I had 10 acres & a nice house in East Texas, while here I have two houses & over 400 acres, yet my tax bill here is 1/10th what it was in East Texas! God has truly blessed us!

That bloom is an awesome thing.

Beautiful during the day. Glorious at night. Small price to pay for all those stars. Ya'll are probably the only people in Texas who smile while writing out the checks.

6 parcels of land... impressive.. made me go back and look at ones that are for sale, and one of my favorites is still listed... may have to buy myself some land for Christmas.

I'm praying that we can trade our 10 acres in SC for enough cash that we can get a nice little piece of desert too...
