Prickly pear cacti
I had made my mom a really pretty sweatshirt jacket with a reverse applique of a Christmas tree..this is the fabric I used...
Here is a prickly pear cactus. This one lives under a tree in our front yard. (yes, we have trees, rain, and even mountains and snow in Arizona! As well as that big hole in the ground ....hehehehehe)
After I told my mom FAITHFULLY that prickly pears NEVER have this color blossom...LOOK what I found when I went out to the mailbox!!??
Isn't it amazing that in a dry hot place like this, you can see something as pretty as this flower? I will post this cacti again ....if it blooms like last year- it
