Yesterday I hiked up Telegraph Pass, a beautiful place in South Mountain Park near my home. I snapped this picture of one of my most favorite saguaros on the hike. Since it can take about 75 years for a saguaro to grow a side arm, this one's pretty darn old. Check out the little white flowers at the top. They bloom every Spring. So pretty. About a second before I snapped this picture with my cell phone, a cactus wren had been perched on one of the arms. Unfortunately I was not able to remove my phone from my pack fast enough and the 'lil guy flew away.
Spring has definitely sprung and so has my heart, a little. :)
