Prickley Pears

Filed under: Red Rocks of Sedona — redrockwriting @ 1:43 pm

Visitors to Sedona are pleasantly surprized that in the heat of the desert, flowers bloom!  All in their time, of course.  Prickley Pears are very colorful, and after the flowers stop blooming, the “pears” start growing.  Javelinas (I’ll have to include a photo of these lovely creatures in a future post) love these fruits, and humans pick them ever-so-carefully to use for jams and juice.  I’ve done both with not too much injury from the spikes!
