Cylindropuntia fulgida - Chain-fruit Cholla. Nature demonstrates to us the importance of one of the greatest elements that is worth its weight in gold in the desert. Water is essential for us all and our plants have been without for a long stretch of time. Look at the vibrancy of Cholla and the blossoms. I have never seen such health from Cholla before. Such an example of wellbeing! When a life has been deprived of essentials, there is only so much time it can still thrive. When given the resources, the life can then thrive. No brainer. So yes, are you drinking enough water? But are you also taking care of your well-being ? Remember to fill your basket so that you can be able to help others as well. Take this Cholla, now she can be a resource to the pollinators and wildlife because she has been taken care of first.
