25 December Special

Merry Christmas from our garden in Napier, Western Cape, South Africa also on behalf of our resident Malachite Sunbird and all the other winged friends.

BTW Hope to see you all in what many South Africans and the tourist industry consider as a ‘dull village’ …. ‘Dull’???? Read here how dull!

It's a Cactus

From Mexico is the Pelecyphora asceliformis. There is no common name for this cactus as far as I know. But I do know that it grows (very slowly; this is a 12 yrs old one grown from seed) in our garden. Ideal subject for B&W photography.
