All the time I spent in New Mexico I never saw a prickly pear the size of this one. We spent the afternoon at the Botanical Gardens
. It was like a fantasy land. I don't know why I never visited before except for the lame excuse that I didn't know how to get there.
So many of the plants there looked as if they had been growing for years. They were larger than life. No, I didn't see a gigantic kaneh-bosem plant, but the afternoon was
an incredible high. You can find more photos at my flickr page
