Arizona Rose

If you want to touch the past, touch a rock, if you want to touch the present, touch a flower, if you want to touch the future, touch a life. -Author Unknown

I love these beautiful “Chenille” Prickly Pear cactus and their vibrant blooms.These are the Opuntia aciculata but received their chenille name as the thorn patches have a furry look to them. This rare species is generally found along the Rio Grande, in south Texas.

I am fortunate to have a number of them gracing my yard, here in Arizona. I like to think of these as my Arizona roses, beauty amongst the thorns.
