The creamy white flowers of the saguaro cactus bloom at night and last for just a day so you have to be vigilant to enjoy their beauty! The top of this saguaro has a few buds that will bloom tomorrow and some that bloomed yesterday or were open this morning before fading. Did you know that the saguaro flower is Arizona's state flower? Here's more info and a spectacular bouquet of saguaros in bloom. Enjoy!
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
