Winter Cacti 冬のカクタス

I am a little concerned about this tilted cactus. This is my neighbour's garden, and I pass it everyday to walk my dog. This particular one seems to want to go south while everyone else grows towards the sky. Obviously the house owner has put the string to hold it. There is always a black sheep or two everywhere...


This beautiful bird of paradise has a tenant, Mr. giant snail. I wonder how long it took him to get up there... since the bird of paradise can be very tall!


I am still not sure if I like this giant bird of paradise... This is in front of our building, and the tree is about 9 feet tall. The white flowers are the size of a human head (or bigger), and it looks beautiful, but quite grotesque. For some reason this tree seems to grow bigger in the winter time. I guess that cacti don't slow down in SoCal!
