How time flies?
leaving behind memories… immortal carvings on the canvas of one’s heart! isn’t it?
My last post is actually more than two years old…got so busy drinking the wine called ‘life”…in all its hues and forms…that it feels like I’m emerging from a hangover.
Well! Sometimes life demands your full attention and its best to give it to it.
Anyhow! Coming to the picture …these are called the Saguaro Cactus that I found on the highway in Arizona….was on a road trip from Texas to Los Angeles…
Researched about them and this is what I found
- The saguaros are the state wildflower of Arizona…can be easily spotted in the state especially if you are on the highway traveling from neighboring states.
- Saguaros live long….often their lifespan exceeds 150 years.
- These cacti easily absorb and store considerable amounts of rainwater and in the process look gigantic …they slowly use the stored water as needed.
- When rain is plentiful and the saguaros are fully hydrated they can weigh between 3,200–4,800 pounds (1,500–2,200 kg). Wow!!!
This one sure seems to be waving…a high five!
