Take two ; The Cactus of Lanzarote for Hywel


By driad


Emboldened by initial success , here come the rest of my pictures of amazing cactii , and I should have taken more , there was such a variety .
This house was just full of cactus , not much room for the residents .

Sorry about the angle here , the large one was about 20ft high .

This is a shot of the Island of La Graciosa from the Mirador at the top of the island . A boat goes over there hourly from Orsola .
Still in the cactus garden

We don't want to upset Hywel do we Sandra? I think the size may be challenging tho'.
