Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

Beautifully colorful prickly pear fruit of the Sonoran Desert. Nikon D40X

the prickly pear cactus, or opuntia, is found nearly world wide, in various forms. the juice is used to make an alcoholic drink, and also to stabilize plaster (whole new meaning to “getting plastered”). the fruit can be used to make jams, jellies and the colorful pink juice, tho the glochids present in the skin must first be removed, as they lodge in one’s skin, with a great deal of irritation. and the nopales, or paddles are eaten when they are young.
