Maybe it is just a cycle and this year saguaros just did not produce flowers. Maybe since the desert in this area received rain in every month since December 2014, that constant rainfall sparked something within the saguaros that didn’t result in flower production. Maybe the warm temperatures of the past winter somehow prevented the cacti from blooming this year. We do not know the reason for so few saguaro flowers in this spring of 2015 but we sure do miss them.
In a year when there were not as many saguaro blooms, here are a few of our 2015 best…
|Four, beautiful bloom on the morning of June 9, 2015|
|The same four blooms now closed on the morning of June 10, 2015|
|Notice the drop of nectar|
|This flower is closing after its night of bloom; taken about 10:30am|
|Love our woodpeckers|
|Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow|
