This is how and why Cactus Ridge got its name. When we first bought the land these little patches of cactus were all over the place. About the third year we owned the property, a big storm came and we had a terrible freeze (for Texas) we lost many patches of cactus and one really pretty tree that Morris had worked so hard on. The one in front of the barn to the left. He shaped and pruned and babied it because when we look out the front door that is what we saw. Ahhhh - but when it froze it cracked down the middle and split the tree into three parts on the ground. It was sad when we saw it but the good thing is it was a Cedar and not one of the grand old Oaks.
