When we first moved here three years ago, there was a small prickly pear cactus in the way of what was to become our driveway. We put it in a pot during the construction phase. It didn’t do so well. Once we moved in and the weather started to warm up, I took the little cactus and chopped it up. I found a donor cholla as well on the property and chopped that up too. I wanted to line the back wall with cactus.
The photo on the left is evidence of what was to come. Both the prickly pear and cholla sprouted. This year, the cholla is about to bloom! As soon as it does, I’ll take some photos.
Spring is here!
