Another kind of barrel cactus. Look like pin cushions to me.
And another one!
And believe it or not, this is a boojam tree. Very strange looking from Australia. Like most desert plants, it stores water in its trunk and has very few branches or leaves.
I have seen a lot of organ pipe cactus in the desert, but never this large and with this many arms. I discovered that one reason why they have so many large specimens of this species is that they were donated as rescued plants in 1940. Wow, they are older than I am!
These are cute little cactus bunches. I think this is a single plant. It was in a covered nursery area with other smaller samples.
Similar to the one above, but not quite. There were several similar-looking species in this area.
I have never seen one of these this big.
Can't remember what this little shrubby plant is called, but I see a lot of it in the desert growing wild.
And a very interesting sundial!
And here I am, at the very end. You can tell it was a chilly day because I am wearing a sweatshirt from Death Valley, where it was also very chilly a few weeks ago!
