Caption: This is a tremendously large cactus to be in Virginia. Think perhaps it took a beating this winter but looks like it is on track for a bunch of blooms again this year.

Great image Shirley! Now there's a plant we'll never see up here (except in a greenhouse).

I'd love to have some planted, but I'd get stuck just it from just looking at it, lol. Several people close to us have a lot planted in their yards.

I see this on my daily walk and I know
there has to be a story to it - how it
got to Virginia - why they chose to
plant this. I keep hoping I will catch
them outside one day. The neighbor beside
of them said the owners that still live
there planted it.
