Well, I just reached a cool milestone with my plant collection – I just hit collection number 10000. It was an Opuntia probably O. humifusa s.s. collected at the Cromwell Valley Park in Parkville, Maryland, 15 June 2019. I know I will never surpass prolific collectors like Clyde Reed whose collection number surpassed 150000 or Wayne Longbottom. who has more than twice as many collections as I do. However, I never thought I would collect this many plants. It’s been a fun ride.
