My wife went out today to the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens to help the Fort Worth Cactus and Succulent Society with its annual cleanup of the cactus area and greenhouse.
There are a lot of different kinds of cactus there including the ones shown here which overwintered in the greenhouse.
If you live in the area you too can check out a wide variety of these hardy plants either at the Botanical Gardens or if you want to take some home, which you can't do at the Botanical Gardens, you can check out the 28th annual show and plant sale which will be held at the Ridgemar Mall at I-30 and Gren Oaks Road in West Fort Worh. It will be going on May 6, 7 & 8, 2011 during regular hours. Not only can you buy them, you can also ask experts what to do with them. Some of the parts, like cactus tuna, are edible and quite tasty if you know how to prepare them.
p.s. No admission charge
