Desert Plants

Look at these beautiful new growths on a Prickly Pear cactus in my yard. They almost look like succulent which made me research the subject a bit. Here is the information...
The cactus family, Cactaceae, is one of the many families having succulent growth. Other plant families having this type of growth are milkweed, lily, and agave families. Therefore it is often said, cacti are succulents, but not all succulents are cacti.
