I must confess, I was suprised. This is Arkansas. We are hot, but not so dry. And while I have seen Prickle Pair in the woods attached to rocky outcrops, this big stand of blooin' cacti was right off of I-40, (near Little Rock) and that after weeks of solid rain -- mixed with the likes of dried Purple Vetch and Red Clover seed-heads.
