Urban Desert


I found this very tall totem pole cactus growing along the street in downtown Phoenix,  It's a tall one but, it's dwarfed by the tall buildings all around it.  All that glass makes and interesting backdrop for a desert plant.

I'll say it does Sharon! What a contrast, would this be a cactus that has spectacular flowers in the right season?

I can see that it's very tall. Looks great.

I have never seen that kind of cactus before. It almost doesn't look real.

It looks really unusual to me, Sharon! Cool capture.

Very nice contraposition of elements! I'm not sure I remember ever seeing a totem pole cactus. Looks like its made out of paper mac-hie. Love the photo!

I wonder if this is the cacti that blooms at night? And then I wonder if it is does any one see it? I have one on my patio and they are really nice.

It really contrasts well with the glass.

I agree with Judy. At first I thought it was a cactus sculpture.

This is real? I thought it was a sculpture.
