Cactus in Kansas City 

Long-time KCCSS member, Mark R., has a knack for artfully combining his love of cactus  with his keen eye for design. An array of color, form, and texture greet visitors arriving at his front door (left). A growing and ever-changing hardy cactus garden (above) can be found in the back yard. A large Adenium  obesum ( below, right) blooms on the patio. At the recent CSSA Convention in Arizona, Mark used his photography skills to capture the symmetry and beauty of this large cactus clump (below, left) at that sale.
