Old and even older ~

These homeowners have used a beautiful saguaro and an equally beautiful saguaro skeleton to landscape the front of their house. Saguaros begin to grow "arms" at 50+ years so the live specimen is old but the skeleton (with arms) was much much older when it died. Old and older!


  1. I really enjoy the way you think when you compose a photo! Old and older. No arms yet on the 'younger' guy, whose still probably pushing 50! It's good that they're protected in the wild now and you need a permit to harvest one. And I smile at the chubby barrel cactus, growing steadily to the south!
