Saquaro blooms

Saquaro cactus have lots of arms.  It takes fifty years for the saquaro to grow arms.  These desert plants are very old and yet each Spring a small bouquet of white blooms appear at the tip of each arm and at the very top of the saquaro.  We know it must be Spring when we see these white bouquets.  Usually, that is our signal to head North for the summer.  However, the bouquets bloom, but we are not heading North.   We are delayed this Spring because they found cancer on Paul's tongue again.  Although it is a different type of cancer, he had surgery yesterday and came home today on a clear liquid diet.  It will be at least three weeks before we start our summer migration.  That means more days to paint in the sunshine!
