Thanks for the kinds words and the acorn, folks.

This is a shot of the desert in Cataviña where exotic giant succulent trees grow. Just about all the plants on the horizon are the 3 identified at the start of this chat thread.

The thread "Cactus and succulents chat" in Cactus and Succulents forum

They are also quite stunning in cultivation, just very slow to reach any appreciable size. Smiling

Thanks, everyone! Smiling I go through photos every so often looking for banner-worthy slices, and in this particular picture all the plants were happening along a narrow strip between light and darkness, so it was an obvious pick.

Thank You!

Baja,
I clicked on the garden site from my email this morning and the page opened up with your banner showing. It took my breath away and I immediately knew that today is going to be a great day. There's nothing like waking up to beauty and it is - gorgeous. Thanks for sharing the loveliness of the sun setting in the desert. Acorn Acorn Acorn Acorn Acorn Gayle
