Cookie having a catnap in the big prickly pear - spineless (not quite)

I have no idea how she avoids the tiny spines. I’ve had run-ins with them and they are not that much fun. But she snoozes in her special place often. All those little “spots” on the cactus pads are buds which become new growth. Since we had 9 snows last winter (or so) and just got 6″ of rain, with more coming, that cactus is going to grow way too much. It’s already 12 feet long!
