My bouquet
created nature’s way,
the makings of my fable
not for someone’s table.

I let my eye
with camera apply
the essence of spring
in this my thing.

What Do You Call A Group Of Saguaros?   1 comment

Saguaros (1 of 1) blogA Group of Saguaros Under Nurse Trees. — Image by kenne

The previous posting (100 Year-Old Cliff Dwellershowed a photograph of a giant saguaro cactus all alone on a steep cliff. Its location was unusual, but given that most saguaros start life under a bush, i.e., a creosote, or a tree, i.e., palo verde and mesquite, making its existence very impressive. Equally impressive is locating a group of saguaros protected by both mesquite and palo verde trees, which begged the question, “What do you call a group of saguaros?” Tribe? Legion? Family? Thicket? Grove? Clump? Gang? Clan? Bunch? Band? Coterie? Whatever, even researching the question didn’t give us an answer. So, for now, you can choose. Given the Tohono O’odham Nation, or Desert People’s cultural connection to the saguaro, I choose “tribe.”

This giant saguaro cactus is easily over 100 years old. Located on the steep Milagrosa canyon wall, which may have served to protect it over the years.
