Congratulations on your finalist, Debra! I really thought this one was a winner! Absolutely gorgeous! I looked thru over 700 post cards tonight and can't fine the cactus identifier. I'll let you know if I find it! #924527

Debra Booth November 19, 2004

Thanks so much, Sharon! I'll have to admit that I was very hopeful about this one myself. Oh, well, another month, another chance!

I hope you haven't gone through all those post cards just to help me out. I really appreciate it, but Marianne and Robert have identified it as a Cholla cactus.

Thanks very much for your kind comments, Sharon!! #925429
