Flowers I Don’t Pick in Tucson Arizona ~ For More Reasons Than One

First, it’s those sticker thorns on the cactus. Second, I want to pick those ‘apples’ it makes after the flower finishes blooming, so I can make Prickly Pear Syrup. In Tucson it’s against the law to pick them outside of your yard. I’m expecting a bumper crop this year.

Last, they are so beautiful out in the yard. It wouldn’t be the same to bring them inside.
