Some shots taken last month at these famous gardens, not far from where I live.

RHS Wisley

I have NO IDEA about plants, so feel free to let me know below if you recognise this! But I believe this one is a cactus...

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

The wonders of Nature are without end . . what an amazing creation this actually is.

Candais from Lisieux, Canada

Remids me of the old Star Wars movie, the desert scene where Jaba was going to throw them into the creature to be slowly digested. Very cool

@Candais: Cheers Candais! More pleasant than a sarlacc I hope...

I had a look at the link you offered, very nice location! It's hard for me to accept that a cactus can be that decorative!
