Prize Winning Cactus
In Hartford! I wonder if they mean Hartford, CT?

Of course this being an American newspaper they get certain details, shall we say, wrong. Like the fact that this is not a cactus. Now it seems to me that a judged show would know the difference between a cactus and a Euphorbia, and that the newspaper writer who may not know the difference at least would be able to read the category headings at the show to know what the prize was for. That’s what I would think.
