Like the angle, Sharon. Cacti blossoms are so varied and beautiful when in full bloom.

As I was driving through our neighborhood the other day seeing all of the saguaros blooming, with flowers too high up to photograph closely, I thought that the Desert Botanical Garden should put up a platform next to a saguaro so people could take close up photos of the flowers. You have done the next best thing.

I love your new template! I just knew this was going to be a saguaro...because that's exactly what I thought when I looked at the one in my yard yesterday. It's wearing crowns. :)

There's nothing more beautiful or more unexpected than a cactus in bloom.
