Cactus gardens are somewhat out of the question here in Massachusetts (at least it would be very limited and many varieties would need to be heavily sheltered), so I am understandably fascinated with the foreignness of designing a garden like this.

I can hardly imagine what it must be like to try and place plants with such hugely sculptural qualities in a way that will someday be pleasing (once they have all come into their full form).   It feels like it might be more an effort in curating a sculpture gallery than a garden.

These images were all taken by stars4ester during a recent visit.  She reports,  “The garden appears to be open to anyone who would like to walk its pathways and take in its wonderful sites. (But with a warning, the traffic at this corner is very busy, fast moving, and loud!)”.
