Photo of the Week : A Blooming Prickly Pear Cactus at Washington on the Brazos State Historical Park, Texas

The prickly pear cactus grows abundantly throughout Texas.  With all the rain we’ve had this summer, the wildflowers are gorgeous – but they can’t outshine the bloom of the prickly pear!  We found this great one at one of our Texas state parks in the Hill Country.
