Macro Monday – Prickly but cute!

Macro Monday – Prickly but cute!

A prickly but lovely flowering yellow cactus, photographed at the Adrian Hall Garden Centre in East Sheen, London.

One of my favorite passes to pass through on my way about East Sheen.


The cactus was ever so popular in the 80’s, do you think it has diminished now in popularity?

Do you have a cactus at home?

Thank you as always for reading and viewing, Justine xx

      very true, have you a cactus, they really don’t seem as popular as they used to be. Me and the boys have great fun watching you tube pranks one being a man landing on a large cactus bush, ouch..bad us!

          I bet it was really beautiful too. The yellow one was stunning.

          Would you tell me about photography prompts you participate in. I will really miss Bastet’s.

            Yes I’m missing her aleady 😦 I only otherwise do the weekly photo challenge but am thinking of perhaps starting a macro Monday one myself πŸ™‚

            Cees photography has some photo challenges but I don’t do those just know they exist.

            If I do the macro please come join me each week πŸ™‚ will let you know xx

    oh, this is so cute πŸ™‚ and I have a special love for yellow flowers, prickly or not πŸ™‚ is it difficult to take care of?
