Not me for, no, god forbid. But if you were in Bakersfield yesterday maybe you caught the cactus and succulent show at the Golden State Mall? In the past it had been held at the East Hills Mall, but this year they moved it, so I hope you didn’t go to the wrong mall yesterday and miss out.
That wasn’t you? Oh, nevermind then.
Anything else about Bakersfield we should know? Well there is a Bakersfield Cactus, aka Opuntia basilaris var. treleasei, but that’s not actually from Bakersfield.
Hahaha! Yes it is from Bakersfield! Nice! It’s the Kern County native Beavertail cactus, so you know it’s good, if a bit endangered by development.
