      I sort of suspect the sisters love each other! 😉

  10. Love the thought of the cacti bearing up the sun…

  11. In Jeddah there is a sculpture of a trio of white marble posts called “Family” that is very reminiscent of this cacti formation. Nice.

  12. Thanks for the new word ‘sere’ – Did I mention I was in AZ last December and saw hundreds of multi-armed cacti hundreds of years old!
