I also thought of Hywel, he`s going to love them. That funny one looks like that horrible Homer Simpson but I won`t hold it against the cactus, its a good sign, makes you smile..
Great Photo`s, shame you couldn`t smuggle a few in your Luggage......

Like you, Joanella, I like Cacti but wouldn't go to a GC to buy one! If I were given one I'd do what I could to keep it growing as I have done before in Spain.

Glad you enjoyed yourself why you were a way. :-)) I also visited a small GC when I was in Spain, when we went to visit our family there for a few days after the Prince's wedding. Because it was Mother's Day in Spain on 1st May we took advantage of the extra day's holiday here plus my wife had a few days holiday in hand to spend 4 days with them.

I've written a blog where I included some photos of the GC our son took me to see. There were some Cacti there as well - they made me remember Hywel as well!
