Tuesdays of Texture – Week 13



“Touch has a memory.”
― John Keats

Here is my entry for Del Monte Y Mar’s Tuesdays of Texture Challenge Week 15 of 2017.

A very brief post for today’s texture and a cliche title. I’m feeling a bit unoriginal right now and really, this cactus had the longest needles, proportionally, that I have ever seen. I would dread bumping into this by accident.

I made the image while on a recent trip to San Jose del Cabo, Mexico and the gardens around the town are filled with cacti. Not surprising, given that this region of Mexico is primarily desert.
