A close up look of the cactus. Those spikes are very pointy and this is as close as I can get to. Falling over can be pretty embarrassing and painful. Ouch!

  8. Lovely! My dad used to have a cactus garden outside and I remember daring myself to go around touching all of them as a small child! Weird!

  10. Very nice! I used to rent a house and the owner had a massive cactus garden with many different varieties. It was said the garden was worth more than the house - imagine how the owner must have felt when the new tenant ripped it out.
