Springtime in the Rockies
(Hotchkiss, CO (US))
red cactus flowers
Living at 5,600' on the high desert of western Colorado would make you believe there is not an abundance of edible plants, oh but that is not true. The desert is alive with many lovely plants and many are useful and edible. I must admit springtime in the Rockies is my favorite. The cactus blooms are late this year, but no less welcome. I currently use the cactus flowers to embellish a meal, in this case making a sauteed cat tail and pepper pizza even prettier. I'm an artist, so I love painting the cactus as well as enjoying their culinary delightfulness.
