Que Saguaro, Saguaro

Remember the decapitated saguaro?  It stands about 5' tall now, so taking a photo of the severed top was a challenge for me.
It's intricate and hard and crusty and spiky.
And, poking out from the pleats,
right at the edge of the cut, breaking the skin apart with surprising strength
some looking sadder than others
but most of them are full and thick and happy
Each one will be an arm.
This is going to be a very interesting plant.

Or, as TBG said, que saguaro, saguaro.


  1. Wow! Cool. It will be multi armed.

    1. I guess there was a lot of growth stored up in the plant, just ready to sprout arms before it was broken. I'm so excited!
