Reflection's Flora and Fauna
A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.

Actually took this in San Antonio! It was about 4 feet, give or take, across and there was a matching one nearby. FAB!!

Ok..gotta comment on this one! I have what looks like the same type cactus. Mine does not have spines and is edible, which is why I bought it. I tried fermenting with other veggies and it was slimy so, Ill have to think of another way to eat it. I think it's probably Mexican cuisine. Anyway, I just weeded around it yesterday and to see it here surprised me, LOL! Pretty sure it's the same variety.

Lisa, google search "nopal". Yes, it should be edible, there are TONS of ways to fix it, some say even raw.

Thanks Carol! I will do that because I remember that when we go to Dunedin we eat at a Mexican restaurant that serves a wonderful cactus salad, it's quite spicy. I order it every time I go. Maybe I'll find a recipe for that! Yum!
