Huntington Garden Fridays, chapter 3
Today is the third installment of Hunting Garden Fridays, you can find chapter 1 here, chapter 2 here. Today, well, it’s pure Desert Garden plant porn! I'll keep the commentary to a minimum so you can just enjoy the pictures...
Look at all of those Barrels!
Here's an interesting contrast. I took this picture...
...followed by this one, at the same time, just facing different directions...look how dramatically different the sky is!
I'm not sure what Yucca this is but look at it's scaly trunk..
Here's a close up. I found it kind of remarkable, so is that trunked Opuntia next to it!
Erythrina chiapasana, from Mexico.
Here's another tiny pup deciding to bloom...
That's it for the Desert Garden, hope you got your spiky plant fill! Next Friday we'll walk through the Palm and Jungle Gardens on our way to the Australian Garden...where our visit wraps up.
