Monday's Country Back Roads
When I think of cactus, I usually imagine a desert setting.
From time to time, I see Prickly Pear Cactus growing, as a native plant, along the back roads to the farm.
Can you see one of the ripen fruits that has turned red?
I have never picked any of the fruit....and, after learning it is necessary to wear leather gloves to scrub off the spines, I think I will continue to buy my Prickly Pear Jelly in the store!
Another good thing about my up-coming move is that I will still be driving these same back roads. The difference is, at the end of the day, My Truck will be parked in a different driveway......
