Yes, I can see you like your cacti. I will be getting more cacti on my site over the next few weeks. So I notice you travel a lot also. Where is your next trip? I am heading to Morocco in April.

Ugh, I don't like cacti much. Though I did grow quite fond of them for a litle while during a holiday in the American South West.

They sure look like monsters. I wouldn't stand too close, just in case :-)

It's really huge. You have given a nice perspective to show the hugeness.
