While we were in Arizona we made a quick trip to the Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden.
Our timing was perfect! As we walked through the gates a tour through the garden was just beginning. We learned so much about cacti!
surrounded by water absorbing fibers.
I had seen nopales at western grocery stores, so I picked some up. They were very reasonably priced, about $ .15 for each 'paddle'.
"No need to go through this effort again for me!"
