In the wake of the tragedy that has beset Arizona last Saturday, I present to you the state flower of the Grand Canyon State - the Saguaro (Carnegiea gigantea)!

I must have missed the story, what happened? Is that a cactus, fantastic blooms, I think the cactus is edible right Helen?

Magnificent. What colour in the sky too. I think if I lived in the south I would be growing cacti of all kinds.
