Okay they aren't the orange Circle Pot that I’ve confessed my eternal love for but they also aren’t $89.
Digs Inside & Out the other night because I had a gift certificate from Christmas (thank you husband) burning a hole in my pocket (or actually my handbag, as I don’t keep gift certificates in my pocket because that whole laundry thing could be a disaster). When I saw these fabulous hanging planters I knew they had to be mine.
Trebol! How have I never had a prickly pear margarita before? Is it not the perfect danger garden drink? You’ve got the Agave (tequila) and the Opuntia (the juice of the fruit) so dangerous! This is going to be my official house beverage on the patio this summer. Photo borrowed from here.
Click on the link for a simple prickly pear margarita recipe and one in which she countered the sweetness of the prickly pear fruit with a little jalapeno (oh ya!) and a great story about buying prickly pear fruit at Whole Foods and how the cashier was frightened of them…really go read it! Although I must warn you that she does say “prickly pears come from a cactus, tequila comes from a cactus”…and we all know tequila comes from an Agave which is not a Cactus, but I’m willing to forgive her if she forgives me for borrowing her picture.
