Echinocactus grusonii crest

This old "Golden Barrel" crest has been through the war and back - and like Timex, keeps on tickin'. You may notice some damage to this plant. That's because seven years ago it survived a blistering fire. Our old garage burned down in the middle of the night and this was on the side of the greenhouse next to the garage. The greenhouse plastic melted all over everything, including the plants, and this was no exception. Now it just gives it that extra character!
