Weekly Photo Challenge: Work of Art

This week’s photo challenge is a “Work of Art”. To me nature is teeming with works of art! I took these photos this past week at the Saguaro National Forest located in Tucson, Arizona.

History of the Saguaro Cactus:
The saguaro is pronounced–sa-war-o
The saguaro lives up to 200 plus years. It takes 70 years for the mature cactus to grow it’s first arm.
The blossom opens and lives for only 24 hours. If it is pollinated by the birds and the bees, it will bear fruit.
Native American Indians use the fruit to make Jam. The fruit has 2000 seeds.
The Sonora desert is 1/3 in Arizona, USA and 2/3 is in Mexico.
The saguaro only lives in this region.
