Cacti and webs (photo)

We do like Mondays, and especially today. High pressure has slunk in from the west, smoke from burning olive logs rises vertically with no buffeting breeze, and there’s barely a sound. The low sun means sunglasses are needed as much now as in the scorching summer months; it’s a special time of year.

On a walk today we spotted this cacti with, what seemed, a cloud of spiders’ webs. If anyone knows more, please tell.

In this quiet earth, in Andalucía.

  1. Fantastic photos! I have seen the webs on cacti here before but that’s pretty amazing 🙂

  2. Good for you! All of Madrid has descended upon Toledo, one cannot shake a bocadillo (never mind a stick) in the street! Tomorrow, the madness will be over, thank God.
