Cactus Child

My partner spotted these in Wheeler’s Lane during a recent trip to Dubbo in Central NSW. Initially thought to be a night flowering cactus, a little research proved them to be a standard (but beautiful, non the less) flowering cacti that flower in the cool of night and close as the heat builds under the big sky during the day. For me they’re a very ‘sharmanic’ plant with loose associations to my teenage years and the writing of Carlos Castanenda.
