Pretty Purple Prickly Pears

A young purple prickly pear cactus pear bearing caducous deciduous "leaves" - they will eventually fall off leaving little prickly glochids in its place.

The cactus are ready to flower, most of them are showing buds.  They should be in full bloom in a few days - come back to see photos of the flowers!
