You see, a little over a year ago there was some serious mischief on my trails.
A crime actually.
Someone had murdered some of my prickly pear cacti.
If you want to know how terrible this crime was you can click on this link here.
Ever since then I’ve been sad every time I walk by and see them.
But those prickly pear are hardy.
And they’re beginning to show signs of healing.
They must have only been almost murdered.
How do I know?
Because dead cacti don’t grow flowers.
It’s like a miracle on my trails.
And things have gotten even better.
The injured prickly pear keep getting more flowers.
But please be careful around these prickly pear.
If you tell them they still look ugly…
they might shed a few flowers.
