A very uncooperative Prickly Pear - Perservere - Teenager

Prickly Pear, AZ Gardens, Stanford  University
This very uncooperative Prickly Pear keeps her face turned away. 

She knows how to use her prickles to her best advantage.

I finally catch her blooming when she isn’t looking.

Once upon a time my daughter was a teenager.

I know all about perseverance.

Baylands in Bloom (Wildflowers, Palo Alto Baylands, CA, Silicon Valley)

I used to call you a Compositae
As I thought I was more sophisticated you became Asteraceae
You're a Daisy
Such a Big Family You Come From
Do You Know That, Little Darling?
