Saguaro Blooms

The heat is near as the mighty saguaro cactus begins to bloom.

There will be two or three a day for some time. Keeps the bees busy!

And a close up. Most of the flowers are quite high so I try to take extra shots when they are lower.

I even found some saguaro fruit frozen in the back freezer, so I thawed it out and made some saguaro jam. Good stuff. The taste is very mild, almost a cross between strawberry and raspberry, but very much a watered-down version - not near as sweet.
