Coming of Age

The Saguaro has to be between 50 and 75 years old before it develops its first limb. We have one at the end of our driveway that appears to have just reached this landmark. When walking past it last week I happened to notice this tiny bobble on the south side of it. In another twenty or thirty years it should have a big impressive limb. No instant gratification where Saguaros are concerned!

Thanks Eileen, I was thrilled although I will be pretty geriatric by the time it grows!!!
