The Giant Cactus Tree

12 Oct

Came across this bad boy in Playa del Carmen this weekend. Gotta admit… never seen anything like it.

Is it a cactus? Is it a tree? Is it both? I dunno but I think I just found my new header.

I love Mexico.

    That thing is crazy! I would hate to stumble into that on a dark night 🙂 Love it as your header- the colors go really well with your background.

    This thing looks awesome. Does anybody have an idea how long it takes until the tree grows so big? By-the-way I like your new header :-).

    I’ve never seen one that big!!! 🙂 But it is just a cactus. A really, really, big (and old) cactus.

    Love your new header! 🙂

    Ohhhh Pretty!!!!! I’ll take a pic of some of the ones we have around here. I had never seen these kinds of cactuses until we moved to Peru! Crazy!

    It’s huge! I remember when my Grandparents replaced a cactus at their arizona house. So expensive!

    new hybrid? I like like it. It’s much lovelier than normal cactuses.

    We had a cactus like this in Florida when I was a kid. It’s a prickly pear cactus. If you grab a leaf and shove it in the ground, it will start a new plant. Ours was closing in on 20 feet high and nearly as wide. Tour buses used to stop to take pictures of it.
