Cactuses are one of my favorite plant groups. Where I grew up in Wisconsin we didn’t have any, so I guess I am still fascinated by the various kinds of cactus of the Southwest. I walk by many prickly pears every morning on my walk, and I take notice in the spring as they come to life, producing first the tuna and then the blossom. The tuna then turns red. I enjoy them on my ten acres, whereas my neighbors seem to rid their property of them. I appreciate the sculptural shape and composition of the plant.
