At the Mitchell Park Domes in Milwaukee, once again, this time in the Desert Dome. Here you can see plants from North and South America, Southern Africa, the Canary Islands and Madagascar.
I always find it fascinating to think that there are people who live in places where they see these kinds of plants every day. To them, they are probably nothing out of the ordinary. Thank goodness there are places like the Domes where people like me, who rarely travel outside the midwest can enjoy these amazing creations of nature.
Great shots Sue. Desert plants are so diverse. Happy Friday. Allan
Thank you, Allen! Happy Sunday!
Fascinating! To me, they almost have an alien look.
I agree, Laurie.
Gosh, that exhibit looks like it was taken straight from the desert Southwest. Fabulous photos, Sue.
Many thanks, Monika!
I can feel the dry, warm air! Great images.
Thank you, Sandy!
This was wonderful Sue. I am especially intrigued by the long, low to the ground cacti that look like furry snakes. I’ve never seen that before.
Thanks, Deb! I think it’s called a monkey tail cactus (Cleistocactus Colademononis)
Well that makes sense!
Lovely succulents, Sue…excellent clarity in the pics!
Thank you, Indira!
It must be great to visit this dome. I love your pictures from the cactussen and the other suculents.
Thank you, Rudi!
Super selection of plants of all sizes, shapes, spiky and waxy textures!! Fascinating and lovely photos.
Many thanks for visiting, Marianne! They manage to pack a lot into these Domes. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a diverse collection of plants in a greenhouse environment.
Excellent photographs of very interesting plants.
Thank you, Tom!
I loved the cacti when I spent 7 months in Arizona. It was very different from Scotland! Thanks for the memories.
Thank you for stopping by. I’m glad the pictures brought back some pleasant memories.
Some of the cactus spines look so soft, but it’s still a good idea not to follow one’s impulse and caress them. 😊
Yes! I’m always careful not to get too close to them, especially the really sharp ones.
