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!
Just for fun, this is a view of the thorny tree from yesterday, but this shows the leafy trunks with thorns. The leaves make it look nice and soft, but beware!
This is a close-up of the trunk of an exotic tree in the Desert Garden at Huntington Library. Some of the other trunks were completely covered with the thorns and leaves, but I liked this one as you can see the individual thorns.
