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!
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!
