One evening last week the Opuntia Santa Claus paid me a visit! She pulled up in her black SUV and (almost giddy with excitement) opened the back hatch to show me this...
Santa made quite the haul!

Persistence pays off in this case as my plant lust co-hort Patricia has been chatting up the entire "Ranch-lands" neighborhood near me trying to find her dream house. She just happened to chat with a fellow who was planning to trim his patch of Opunita and offered to call her when he did, and he did! And now I have some big beautiful Opuntias! Thanks Patricia!
