Cactus Country. Part 1
Cactus and Succulents are plants that are not really in my sphere of interest, I’ve taken this point of view for nigh on twenty years and I’ve been strong in my dislike for them. I can’t explain what has happened because I don’t know what has happen because now I seem to be softening in my stance towards these plants. So much so that in the last six months I have started to look at them and admire them. I now look at things like World of Succulents on Facebook, Danger Garden and Succulents and More(2 excellent blogs that I read). I also discovered recently a place called Cactus Country which is located in Strathmerton, Victoria about an hour and 50 minutes from us. So we decided a visit was required and this is what we saw!
I’m sorry I don’t have names for any of these, I don’t have the foggiest idea! I know some are Ferocactus, Agaves, Opuntias, Cereus, Saguaro, Trichocereus and Yuccas. But that’s about it. For now I just hope you have enjoyed the photos of these amazing plants in all their varied shapes, colours and spines!
