BARCELONA ; CACTI AND SUCCULENTS

When on holiday I am always on the look out for cactus gardens and as there are many of them in Spain I just knew there would be one in Barcelona too and yes, there was one and I found it on the Barcelona map so we went over there for a visit, it was awesome !

Have a great sunny Sunday all !!! and enjoy your garden !

 

“MY” CACTUSGARDEN part 2

Here is the second part of our visit to cactusgarden Algar in Spain.

In the South of Spain you can find quite a lot of cactusgardens you can visit and many people have a cactusgarden of their own, I’d love to go and live in Spain but my husband is not so keen on the idea as he would have to leave all his birds behind (he has hundreds !)

 

HERE YOU CAN BUY ALL THE GOODIES !!!

This is the garden of my dreams !

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND ALL !

“MY” CACTUSGARDEN part one

Alas alas I don’t own a cactusgarden, the weather is not right here in Belgium but I regularly go to Spain and whenever I go to Spain I visit “my” cactusgarden. It is situated near Benidorm in a small place called Algar and I call it “my” cactusgarden cos the first time me and my husband were there, we were the only visitors so it felt like my private garden. It is huge and I love it ! I have seen the garden grow and I have seen the plants grow and the amount of visitors though. Even if you are not so keen on cacti and succulents it is still worth visiting. The garden is called cactus d’Algar.It is made against the side of a mountain and the pictures were taken in March.

 

THIS IS A VIEW YOU HAVE WHEN YOU ARE IN THE GARDEN

 

 

 

 

ONE OF MY FAVORITES

ALSO ONE OF MY FAVORITES
