The normal blooming season for the giant saguaro cactus is in late May and June. Yesterday (December 30th) while hiking in Sabino Canyon I spotted this unusual event. I guess you can call it the new “Christmas cactus!”

The saguaro blooms open at night and last through the next midday. Each flower blooms only once.
