Do you find yourself looking for pictures in clouds, or naming the plants in your garden? If so, put your creativity to the test for the "Name the Cactus" competition and you could win a free vacation getaway.

For the third year in a row, the Boulders Resort and Golden Door Spa near Scottsdale, Arizona is putting on a cacti-naming competition. Six unique cacti will be honored with new titles; therefore six contest winners will be chosen.

Winners and a guest will receive a two-night stay at the resort, daily breakfast at the Palo Verde Restaurant, and two twosomes at the Boulders Golf Course. Winners will also receive a $500 airfare gift card.

The resort, a collection of adobe casitas set amongst a landscape of bluffs in the Sonoran Desert, is part of the Waldorf Astoria collection. The 1,300-acre property features a world-renowned spa; two Jay Morrish designed golf courses; eight tennis courts; and four distinct pools.

Past winning names include "Gladtameetchoo," "Mr. Grumps," "Rabbit Jack," and "Butch Cactus and the Saguaro Kid." AAA Arizona and the Scottsdale Convention & Visitors Bureau sponsor the contest.

For your chance to win, enter at the Boulders Resort and Golden Door Spa contest page. Contest runs from March 29th through June 1st, 2010.
