  1. This is my beautiful Cereus peruvianus "Night-Blooming Cereus" - thanks to OOLOH I know its name. It reminds me of The Little Shop of Horrors .The fruit is edible but I haven't tried it ..

  2. Brrr I don't want to sit on that !

    By the way I don't know if there were a fertility godness, but I can tell you there were miles of phalluses around !

  6. That fruit and picture looked very familiar...! (lol). It is a delicious fruit, my dear...! Just like all fruits, even these Cactus type fruits are all different in texture and look and flavor, too...though on first glance they look very much alike...I hope you get to taste this someday...!

  16. Reminds me of many things- not all of them phallic, either. . . missing the desert- it does belong in a gallery.

  17. you're right, this is very "little shop of horrors!"

    ReplyDelete
  18. LOL! When I came here I came straight from Naomi's -- and when your page opened I said "hm... I'm back at Naomi's".... Is the one in the PICTURE yours Mar? Hanging SO big... in a gallery? If so I AM very impressed! They are very neat plants and I'd be a little hesitant to try the fruit for some reason.... I would end up doing it though! Curiosity would get the better of me! It looks like some birds have already enjoyed this fruit a little!

  19. wow, is that sticky outy part really part of the cactus? that's cool! happy WW!

    ReplyDelete
