These Giant Cactuses Dwarfed Me

Back in the third world, we used to have cactus and aloe vera plants in our backyard. We would skinned them from their thorns, using a nail cutter and scissors, until they’re flawless and bald. Of course, our poor mother would be so angry why we would do that to those poor plants. Well, you know, kids do all things kids, right? πŸ˜€

I’ve never seen a giant cactus before. So, imagine my shock when I was up close and personal with these giant cactuses around Phoenix, Arizona. When friends drove me to a lake outside Surprise City and I had to tell them to stop on the side road because I want be closer and touch these spiny plants which only grow in tropical lands.

I couldn’t believe that these giant cacti are surrounded by other smaller kinds of cactus in different colours and shapes. I’ve only seen green cactus in my life, so I was psyched when I saw purple! LOL…. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Where to see these giant cacti:
Take note that Arizona is not friendly to commuters who take public transportation. If you’re driving, you can easily spot these tall cacti on the highways. Park your car safely. You can also see these plants in some house backyards, public parks and gardens. If you have time, visit the Desert Botanical Garden in Arizona.
