Cactus Flowers
Cactus Flowers

Or buds or fruits or something.  I didn’t know they could be so prolific.  It was as if they were bursting with spring joy!  And multiple colors on a single plant.  These were huge plants and lots of them, and these red or pink or yellow or orange or chartreuse blossom things just scattered generously all over.  Like someone tossed handfuls of them in general abandon!

  1. Prickly pears. After the blooms are gone, many of the knobs become edible fruit. We have a couple of them; they are native to Virginia as well as to many other states. Ours only get yellow blossoms, and the fruits don’t develop quite as nicely as one might hope for. I myself have never eaten cactus fruit, but I have had prickly pear jelly, which is tasty.
