Succulent rosettes

On my recent trip to Mexico, I saw some extremely pretty succulents in my sister’s garden. Don’t they look like roses?

Opuntia cactus

So much fun at the Botanical Garden (El Charco del Ingenio Jardin Botanico) in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Here is a close up of a nopal cactus. Spiky!

Nopal cactus (Opuntia or prickly pear) getting ready to fruit, I think.

Crocodile…really alligator

No words needed. But a Florida resident tells me it’s a gator, not a croc. Crocs don’t get this big.

Powerful crocodile, or maybe an alligator? in Florida

Orange flamingos

I know flamingos are supposed to be pink, but the ones I saw in Florida a couple of years ago seemed maybe more orange. Posting just for fun on this gray Seattle day.
