In full bloom

A bee moves in on one of the blossoms of a saguaro cactus that is in full bloom on the northwest corner of 4th Avenue and 16th Street on Monday afternoon According to desertumuseum.org, saguaro flowering begins around the last two weeks of April, and peak flowering occurs during the last week of May through the first week in June. Saguaro flowering is triggered by winter rain – which Yuma did not see much of – as well as the increased day length, and warmer temperatures of spring.
