This last couple of weeks with all of the rain The Fairy Garden has exploded with colors! Kevin Cooper (Great Indie Authors) requested pictures of the Prickly Pear that we have that are indigenous to the Southwestern Missouri area. We don’t have to buy plants anymore since the perennials self-propagate so we just cut a bit off and replant!
Please enjoy our Fairy Garden and we will be sure to take pictures of the next phase of the Fairy Garden as it grows. God Bless 🙂
Enjoy our view of Spring in Missouri!
Here is what the Prickly Pear fruit looks like in the Fall. We both tasted the fruit and it seemed OK and we are not dead yet! I think it must be dried up though, so will keep a close eye on the plant next year! Sandy did get a cactus thorn in her lip 🙂
This is a very interesting plant! The Prickly Pear is indigenous to this area. It only blooms once a year in about July.
Trying to weed around it is a definite challenge! Usually, we go around pulling out stickers from our arms for a couple of weeks.
Happy Fairy Garden Friday!!
