Cacti at the Majorelle Gardens in Marrakesh

Right after the pond and fountain there was a cactus garden. Rather unexpected after the relative lushness of the rest of the garden. However Morocco is not a lush country, so I should not have been surprised.

Too bad I couldn't have put something next to this monster to show the scale. If memory serves me correctly, it was about 5-6' across.


I bet you can guess why I took a pic of this cactus!


It was closing time and we were being kicked out, but I grabbed a quick shot of this wrinkly one.


When I stopped to take a pic of this one, my daughter suggested it would be better from a slightly different angle. So I handed the camera to her and she took the second shot. I can't decide which is more interesting, so why not include both!

Marrakesh is semiarid, isn't it? We have much rain in Japan, so it's difficult to grow into a cactus at a garden.
