New Jersey Cactus
New Jersey resident writes in to her local newspaper, and they print her story and a photo too.
I do not know the technical name for this cactus plant, but my dad called it a prickly pear cactus. He owned a home in Westwood. I transplanted a couple of cuttings and it has thrived — with bright yellow flowers — every year in front of my home for 20 years.

Anyone want to help Donna out with a species name?
