One thing that I took a few pictures of when we were in Texas were flowering cactus. Here in Minnesota you can imagine we do not have a lot of wild cactus growing. So it was kind of a novelty to me. Last time we were down in 2010 it was earlier in the year. All of the yucca were in bloom but it was too early for the cactus. This time most of the yucca were finished blooming but I found quite a few blooms on cactus almost every where that we went.
