Saguaro blooming, but's not just the saguaro blooming

Saguaro in bloom

Spring is definitely here when the cacti are blooming.  This cactus has to be 75-100 years old before it begins to grow "arms".  The one is this photo is not growing "arms" yet, so that means it is still young.  However, it does have lovely blooms.

Yesterday was one storm after another, but TODAY is beautiful.  Happy Easter everyone!


  1. Gorgeous flowers, Hazel! The new issue of Sunset magazine--the 'Camping Issue' has recipes using nopales, which Jim says come from the prickly pear cactus. Might try one or more of them--they looked delicious!

  2. Beautiful flowers on the cacti.

    Hope you have had a lovely Easter weekend.

  3. Lucky you to be able to see the desert in bloom! And lucky us that you have shared these beautiful photos!

  4. Oh my gosh! Those blooms are beautiful!
