A Prickly Pear

Assuming my memory is working correctly the only time that I have ever seen a Prickly Pear was when I was in California. Today I saw one at Bicton Park Botanical Gardens. Cactii are not really my thing but I have to admit that this was a magnificent plant standing much taller than me.

  1. Beautiful! I love cacti. :^)
    Guess it's from my growing up in the desert...New Mexico, Nevada...and now, Oklahoma is a mix of flora and fauna...you've seen the photos of the cacti here.
