Prickly Pear Cactus (These the leaves and bloom are both edible and quite tasty, I must say)
Mesquite Trees are everywhere. They are used extensively here and in Mexico for flavoring BBQ meats. The bark is burned along with the charcoal.
Barrel Cactus. I think everything there has thorns!!!!! But they are all pretty this time of year as they do have very exotic blooms.
Hi All, I am glad to say we got some response to our Find the Bedly Contest.

Will be getting the prize in the post this week. Thank you girls for proving that I am not crazy. I also see things in cloud formations!
Have not heard a word from Billy since he and the girls got there. I sure hope he and John did not get lost in the forest while the girls were hunting. And hope the dogs all caught their game.
To take up a bit of space, I am including a few more pictures from my holiday in the old Southwest of the cowboys & indians territory from lore.
Have a great week. And, we will see what we can get going the next time Billy goes off and leaves us to play.
