cactus plant on East Boulevard

the cactus plant on East Boulevard is enjoying out hot weather in Charlotte
The temperature hit 100 F today and similar highs are forecast for the next two weeks. So today we are sharing this photo of a cactus plant on East Boulevard which maybe the only thing enjoying these unseasonably high temperatures. Actually I took this photo several months ago during much cooler weather and I took the photo because it shows two contrasting images which are both out-of-place in Charlotte. Cactus are not indigenous and rarely found in Charlotte. Also, if you look closely there is a ski shop in the background. Cactus and skiing … hot and cold (smile).

The photo was taken at 1511 East Boulevard in history Dilworth near Uptown Charlotte. The business in the background is the Alpine Ski Center.
