Cleistocactus straussii is the first cactus I have blogged around here in ages. It’s been so long I practically forgot what a cactus even looks like. It looks like this.
They are summer bloomers, but there’s often stragglers on and off throughout the year.
I wonder what they look like at the tip of the plant, against a sky blue backdrop?
From the high altitude plains of the Himalayan mountains. I mean the Andes, sorry about that.
Hummingbirds love them. I do too. Am I a hummingbird? No, I am not. I am your faithful blogger, a person. And I have never been to South America.
