Ethel’s Chocolates & Botanical Garden in Las Vegas

Ferocactus cylindraceousWhile researching sights for a quick trip to Vegas, I came across Ethel’s Chocolates & Botanical Garden.  Sounds odd, I know, but Cactus + Chocolate = YUM!  So off to Vegas to find out what’s up.  Turns out they were decorating for Christmas.  Unfortunately, we missed the big lighting ceremony so we couldn’t see the result.  But we saw lots of cactus and ate lots of…um, very good chocolate.  (Must have:  Pecan Brittle!)

More cactus to come, but this Ferocactus cylindraceous (Red Barrel Cactus) was gloriously blooming just in time for the holidays.  Enjoy!
