This was one of the cacti in bloom in the Desert Garden at Huntington Library gardens during my December trip there. It seemed quite different, and was flowering profusely.
This tall cactus was photographed at the Desert Garden at Huntington Library gardens. I liked the ruffly patterns on the cactus stalks, against the blue sky.
Yet another cactus from the Desert Garden at Huntington Library--one with very bright spines. Couldn't pass this one up without a shot or two!
