First Saguaro Flowers of Spring

Saguaro Flowers

We were at the pharmacy this morning to pick up some meds when I saw the old saguaro cactus in the parking lot had sprouted some flowers. We went over and took a few pictures of the new flowers and all the flower pods of flowers to come.These are the first saguaro flowers we have seen this spring. The saguaro flower is the state flower of Arizona. Click on the image to enlarge.

Hedgehog Flower

What may be the last of the hedgehog flowers for this year opened today. There were several pods open and I did not see any more getting ready to open. This was the prettiest one on the cactus today. We will miss them until next year. Click on the image to enlarge.

Easter Bay Bay

Easter Bay Bay

A few days ago, I dug this cute pair of bunny ears and put them on Bay Bay. He tolerated them long enough to let me snap this photo of him wearing them. Too cute! Click on the image to enlarge.

Argentine Giant Flowers

Argentine Giant Flowers

As promised, the Argentine Giant Cactus flowers. They opened last night and were still open at about 10AM before starting to fade away. This cactus isn’t done yet - there is another flower bud coming for sure and maybe more. Click on the image to enlarge.

Argentine Giant Flowers Coming Soon

Coming Soon

We thought that these Argentine Giant cactus flower pods would have opened this evening, but we’re still about a day away from enjoying the flowers for a brief time. They will open and stay open overnight but they will start to fade the morning after. It’s only a brief window, but I am planning to get some good photos of them and will post them here very soon.
