Hello Jean.
I am not sure you would like to know the species, cultivar, etc.
I only know it's an Opuntia. More than that... I have no idea.
And a really NICE one!

Could be that one as well. I can't tell is it's more upright or more prostrate.

Sorry for the late reaction, only just discovered All Things Plants.
I think this is Opuntia macrorhiza or Plains Prickly Pear.
It is what it is!
