Guest blogger is friend Lisa who captured this shot when she took a walk.
Power in disguise. I should have included this image along with the real Saguaro yesterday so one could compare.
Believe me, when this “cactus” is all closed up and there is not a cherry picker parked alongside, you’d drive right by a hundred times and not see the bolts or secret door!
There’s a link to photos of disguised cell phone towers
No maple, oak or birch.
I’d never really seen a Saguaro Cactus up close (except in movies and cartoons) until my midwinter break.

My friend Kristin sent this beautiful Orchid Cactus (epiphyllum) blossom from Florida- on the phone!
I invited her to guest blog it. I had never seen an orchid cactus before.
The cactus blooms once a summer and the flower lasts about 24 hours.
Glenn Rice’s page states “Opens and closes in a single night” opens and closes on a single night
That’s it. A beautiful short life.
Kristin got the cactus at a local/ native nursery.
Thanks Kristin for sending the beautiful blossom. I forgot to ask if it has a scent.
