My Quest for Prickly Pear Fruit

It's prickly pear season...that means it's time for a nice walk through the pasture with my 5 gallon bucket and a pair of channellocks. :)


The sage smelled wonderful............



I did get side tracked by the dragon flies around the pond.....


and the wildflowers....


Plenty of fruit this year....








It didn't take long to get enough fruit for two batches of jelly....


At the end of the afternoon, I was able to sit on the tailgate of my pickup and watch the sunset...... I really enjoyed the day. :)

Youre one lucky (and culinarily gifted) girl!
