Name That Other Saguaro!

August 30, 2020

   If you just joined us, thanks to Allie Baker and The Tree Relocators, we had two very unique saguaros delivered last Friday to act as sentinels at the entrance to Cactusland.

The new entrance to Cactusland

   We got some great names for the ventilated saguaro at right (see hilarious name suggestions below). Meanwhile, it's time to name saguaro number two.

Saguaro Number Two

   As you can see, she has her mouth open quite wide and appears to be saying something profound, or maybe not.

The Bird of Paradise

   I must commend everyone for the creative name suggestions for our new, ventilated saguaro. Kathy and I both read them and laughed out loud numerous times. Here are our favorites, so far:

"Reina de Predigones" (The Queen of Buckshot)

—Julia Flannigan

"Holy Moley"

—Marty Manning


—Julie Smith and many other variations on flipping the bird, including "Bird of Paradise" above.

"Saguaro del Fuego" (Fire Saguaro)

—Lydia O'Rafter


—Bill Rogers, nice Charles Schultz reference


—Scott Matula (Kathy laughed and laughed at this one. She thought it was so hilarious.)

"Seeing ourselves as others see us would probably confirm our worst suspicions about them."

—Franklin P. Adams



  1. Since it forms what's called a "saguaro boot" around a hole like that, I say call her Bootsy.
