Yes, 'tis the season for the mighty saguaro cactus to throw itself into full bloom! The beautiful bouquets of blooms atop the saguaros are recognized as the Arizona State Flower. The blooms don't last long so enjoy them while you can.
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. (:
