Personal Photo from Arizona Highways 1978Why not tell you about the Saguaro as well?
So here goes... we're getting clear frames that have stands and in them we will be placing the beautiful pictures, but on the reverse we will have the "facts" listed.
So the one for the Saguaro will go something like this:
Fun Facts about Saguaro (Cacti)…Let's not forget my friend Piggy... well he's actually a Javelina...
The name of saguaro comes from a Native American word, sah-wa-ro. It takes this slow-growing cactus about 14 years to grow three feet tall and between 60 and 75 years to prout its first arm. Saguaros with five arms are more than 150 years old! The saguaro produces its first flower when it is about 50 years old. The white blossoms open only at night, last less than 24 hours and are pollinated by moths and bats.

Ahh see what graduate school will do to you? Every moment is a "teachable moment"! We also thought this may provider fodder for those awkward moments our guests might have with new friends.What’s a Javelina?Pronounced have-a-lee-na.Though some people think Javelina are a type of wild pig, they are actually members of the peccary family, a group of hoofed mammals originating from South America. Javelina are common in much of central and southern Arizona, including the outskirts of the Phoenix area, most of Tucson, and occasionally as far north as Flagstaff. Javelina form herds of two to more than 20 animals and rely on each other to defend territory, protect against predators, regulate temperature and interact socially. They use washes and areas with dense vegetation as travel corridors. Javelina are most active at night, but may be active during the day when it's cold.
