Cactus Down Under

Cacti Adelaidii.  Fuji F10
11th September 2013

Here in Adelaide they have some very 'functional' cacti.   As the jetlag took hold over lunchtime, I took a wander to clear my head and stumbled across this nice specimen of Cacti Adelaidii.

They are very common growing on the edge of the pavement throughout the city but many do seem to be in a slight state of disrepair where errant children or students have acquired the cover-caps of their arms to decorate their rooms with.

In the UK, the trophy of choice was a traffic cone, or for the really adventurous, an estate agents sign.
