Iowa Cactus


Local News! From the Muscatine (IA) Journal comes this lonely tale of a cactus in a front yard. It’s the perfect story for a Saturday morning.

Take a drive down Muscatine’s Fifth Street and you’ll see flowers, houseplants and even a cactus bed. What next? Cornstalks in the desert?

Looks like Barb keeps her low-growing opuntia well trimmed. Very little is hanging over the planter edge into the sidewalk.
