Saguaro Sunday

The Saguaro is blooming and will continue throughout May and maybe into June. The higher in elevation the later they bloom. These giants are found in the Sonoran Desert. They can grow to fifty feet tall, weight up to nine tons and live to around two hundred years old.

They not only provide a home, nesting area for birds but after the flower comes a bright red fruit, that the birds, bees and bats just love. One of the many cacti that live in this area, adapting to the dry, hot summers.

The uniqueness of the southwestern landscape, the beauty of the flowers within the thrones keeps me intrigued. Nature, the sun on the mountains, the simple beauty of the full moon. These things bring be peace.
