Polypores (shelf fungus) growing on a fallen log at the Enchanted Rock Natural Area in the Texas Hill Country. I couldn't find a species identification of these interesting "fuzzy" polypores. If any fungus experts out there have a more narrow identification, let me know!

Love from Texas, y'all! Opuntia engelmannii var. lindheimeri, growing in the Enchanted Rock State Natural Area.

Opuntia is a genus in the cactus family, Cactaceae.

Prickly pears are edible - astuna (fruit) or nopal (paddle)! And delicious may I add.

Like all true cactus species, prickly pears are native only to the Americas, mostly in arid to semiarid regions. But they have been introduced to other parts of the world.

Buds on the tree in my "new" backyard

Not sure what kind of tree...if anyone knows, please comment. Once they bloomed they smelled and looked a lot like honeysuckle.
