Every spring, in the southwest, the saguaro cactus blooms for a short period each day. The flowers typically will open up each morning and close as the afternoon wears on. Since the saguaro is so tall, it's difficult to get close enough to get a photo of this annual event. However, we have one growing right next to our house that is how old enough to have some blooms. I was able to convince Husband to climb up on the roof for some pictures.
