Standing proud; the giant of the desert. It takes a Saguaro cactus about 10 years to grow two inches, but can ultimately reach 40 to 60 feet in the course of its lifetime (up to 150 years).  When I first moved here, I could not refused to see their beauty.   Who could embrace (figuratively, of course) their stark, rigid stature?  Their indelicate nature?  Their lack of shade?  What beauty is there in it?  Now, I take pictures of them all the time.  I’ve found each Saguaro to have its own personality, its own story and history, its own beauty.  When something works so hard to survive in such devastatingly harsh conditions, there is beauty beyond what the eye can see.
