Minnesota wildflower sleuths Kelly Povo and Phyllis Root periodically send us reports on where and when to spot the best flowers.

Their latest dispatch comes from a protected prairie owned by Carleton College, where they found prickly pear cactus in bloom.

You can read more about their flower finds at their blog.
