Although I have been back from the Southwest for a few weeks, I couldn't resist a couple of things from the Arizona airport gift shop.
I picked up a Giant Saguaro seedling starter kit and was ecstatic to see a sprout poking its way out. My mom opted for an already established Saguaro of 2 years telling me matter of factly that I would have to wait 50 years for my cactus to even flower. To which I responded "Really, because 48 years is that much different?"
I also brought a little bit of that dessert home with my potted cacti. I loved the blooms on this guy and I can't wait to see what the other cacti have in store. So far everyone is adjusting to the MN climate.
