Prickly Pear Cactus, originally uploaded by needlepointernc.

The needles on this prickly pear cactus are RAZOR SHARP! I didn’t know that the JC Raulston Arboretum at NC State has a whole Scree garden. Tomorrow I will have a once in a lifetime picture that I took there today.

Another one of the cactuses is in bloom too. It was too sunny so I need to go back when it is cloudy this weekend.

Definately razor sharp – and a sharp shot too.

I wouldn’t want to accidentally back into one of those!

I love these cacti – the blooms are incredible!
