western u.s

Hi everyone!

Wanted to update you guys to tell you that I will be doing a three week road trip this summer to some pretty fantastic western U.S. locations. I can’t say much more than that right now but I definitely plan on sharing a lot of it with you here as well as on my Instagram 

The road trip is going to start mid July so stay tuned. :)

I will be posting more photos from around Washington until then!

Opuntia polyacantha ‘Crystal Tide’

Opuntia is a very large genus - one of the larger groups in the Cactus Family, and ranging farther north than any other group of cacti. Opuntia polyacantha is one of the most cold-hardy of all, and grows from western Canada down through the Great Plains of the western U.S. The cultivar ‘Crystal Tide’ has very pale yellow flowers - almost white.
