A Cactus Grows in Oregon

From the Corvallis Gazette Times we find out the truth of this claim.

A prickly pear cactus at Oregon State University bloomed this year. The flowers, which lasted only about a day each, were at their peak earlier this month. (Photo contributed by Jim Weldon)

Pretty! Well, I’ll be. A cactus does grow in Oregon.

Or does it…???

Now that I look at it, there’s no proof in the photo itself. Do we trust the Oregon State Beavers to give us the straight story on the growth of cactus in Oregon? Do they even have a horticulture department? These are the question that I respectfully demand answers to before I will accept this claim that a cactus grows in Oregon.

Oh, and this too.
