It's time for the ripe saguaro cactus fruit to split open allowing birds to feast on the juicy pulp and dark seeds inside.

The desert looks and smells as if the saguaros are blooming all over again, this time in rich shades of red rather than white.

Red ripe saguaro fruits are a sign that the rainy season will begin soon.  Moisture is always welcome in the desert.
