Description

It is a light green shrub with high trunks that are holding it. I took the picture when I was walking to my Music School in Insurgentes. The weather was cold and it was raining and it was like 5 o'clock in the afternoon. Also below the shrub are another kind of leaves.

Hace frío, está lloviendo.
Las espinas de esta especie están algo decaídas e incluso se puede observar que hay algunas que le están creciendo de nuevo. La coloración rojiza que tenía en la parte superior cambió a un color más parecido al naranja. En general se le nota a la planta un poco más lastimada que antes.

Description from Wikipedia

A cactus (plural: cacti, cactuses, or cactus) is a member of the plant family Cactaceae, within the order Caryophyllales. The word "cactus" derives, through Latin, from the Ancient Greek κάκτος (kaktos), a name originally used for a spiny plant whose identity is not certain. Cacti are native to the Americas, ranging from Patagonia in the south to parts of western Canada in the north—except for Rhipsalis baccifera, which also grows in Africa and Sri Lanka.
