While walking along the Appian Way I described in Caput Mundi Revisited that we passed by the Istituto Salesiano San Callisto on our way to Church of St Mary in Palmis and then to the city centre.We noted that the front of the Istituto had acquired a new feature: a marvelous collection of succulents. The comparison with coral formations as seen in the Indian Ocean was immediate so we decided that a closer examination was required. What we found is presented here as a pictorial account. No attempt at identifying the plants was made and I leave that to the readers interested in cacti!
While carefully looking at the plants we noted that seashells had been placed surrounding the plants, a clear reminder to us that whoever did this wonderful work had also thought of the sea!
It is clearly difficult to be original in this world!
 I wrongly referred to it as Dio Silvano college in my Caput Mundi Revisited post, apologies.
wow !! what a collection !!
Thank you. Whoever did it must have had “thorny fingers”!!! and some patience.
oh but if you are into cacti you know how to handle them without being pricked ! and gardening teaches you patience ofcourse 😀
Maybe I should take up gardening… instead of blogging.
