Prickly Pear

These cactus grow all over Texas
and are in yards in San Antonio. My dad, tired of
mowing the lawn, always threatened to get rid of
all the grass, haul in some rocks, plant some cactus,
and just have a rock garden surrounding the
house. (My mom would just roll her eyes...)

I have painted lots of versions of these pretty
flowers. I like the contrast between the thorns
and petals, the flat leaves and the fluffy flowers.
