Seeing the Beauty in Cacti

When we visited the U.S. Botanic Garden in Washington, D.C.,
they had one room dedicated to Cacti
I did take some pictures of the beautiful plants and since I haven't gone anywhere lately
I'll share them with you here today.

Good thing I save stuff - right?











From our visit on December 13, 2016

  3. Hello Debbie, love the variety of cactus. I have never been to this Garden in DC, maybe in the spring. Love the last pretty flower. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

  4. I'm so glad you do save things! These are fascinating. I should probably have cactuses around my house because I'm pretty bad about watering...

  5. I love cactus (maybe being from the desert). Found not a good idea to have in the yard with my running-nuts pups.
