The leaning tower came down this morning. https://cactuswatcher.dreamwidth.org/455899.html.

Over the last few days it went horizontal, and yesterday below horizontal, blocking the driveway and last night the top fell to the ground. The bloom stock broke most of the way through at its base, making it a lot easier to cut away the rest. Didn't even need to go up more than a couple steps on the ladder. I measured it before I chopped it up and the stalk was about 12 foot long. It's all gone and the plant looks like it was never there. The neighbors probably think I'm screwy for leaving it be so long. ;o) But the process was fun to watch.
