I have a short prickly pear cactus that blooms in the Spring. I don't
like it and will remove it but I do like the taller proper prickly pear
cacti and they are fixing to bloom around here too. Lotsa crepe myrtle
blooming now too! Thankfully. Hopefully the recent rains we got brings
in our Fall nectar flow!
