  6. My first thought was Medusa’s snakey coiffure. 🙂 Watch out for those spines. 🙂

    A beautifully formed specimen!

  8. Alice says:

    Wildly wriggly and prickly. ( I wonder where you went to see that one!?)

  9. Treah Pichette says:

    I might have to copy that form into one of my drawings! Nature is the greatest artist & inspiration.

  10. Dale says:

    What a beautiful cactus, Eliza. Love the swirls – almost hypnotic.

  11. shoreacres says:

    I’ve never seen a cactus with such waves; it’s lovely!

  12. Cactus are so interesting to grow.

  13. Wonderful wavy texture underneath the spikes.

  14. Such a beautiful perspective, Eliza. Beautiful and unique.

  15. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen you post a photo of a cactus! This is an interesting one.

      The local conservatory has a really nice cacti and succulent collection, and many are blooming now. I’m going to try to get back in a couple weeks to try to capture the Kalanchoe beauverdii blooms. I love that plant! Thanks for your help in IDing it.

    Such a beautiful cactus Eliza, I’ve never seen a swirly one like this! 💚

  17. Debbie says:

    Look at those twirlies!! It’s fabulous, Eliza!

  18. Tina says:

    Wavy green, spiky tan–nice combination! Great photo, Eliza!

  19. Maria says:

    Beautiful details Eliza. I saw the first coltsfoot yesterday, and thought of you 🙂

  20. What an interesting plant…✨

  21. It must be a hardy cactus if it can survive New England winters out-of-doors, which your photo suggests.

  22. That’s one wavy cactus.

  23. Chaymaa says:

    Beautiful and looks unique! 😊

  24. Love the perspective, and the contrasting sharp spikes and soft curves.

  25. Isha says:

    So intricate! It almost seems as though it twinkles!

  26. That’s a pretty one, and a good angle to show off the structure!

  27. Alex says:

    I love Echinofossulocactus (genus name changed I think) , but don’t see them often in Northern California so haven’t had one for years.

    So beautiful! Cactus patterns are intriguing. 🌵
