First time on Mt. Lemmon since last November. At 9,200 feet only a few wildflowers are in the beginning stages of blooming. On this Memorial Day in Tucson, it’s 100 degrees, but it was a pleasant 65 degrees on Mt. Lemmon.

The SCVN Friday Hikes begin this Friday on Mt. Lemmon.

Naturalist David Dean conducts Wildflower Hike. Click here for dates and reservation information.

A Bounty of Pigment   Leave a comment

A Bounty of Pigment_art blogComputer Art by kenne

In his robe is white
with bright colored edges
he 
sings a lullaby 
in a pale purple sound.

In this moment
the earth rotates in blue
as seen by the man
in the moon.

A bounty of pigment
his harvest of colors
randomly selected 
from the house of earth.

match the beat of the universe,

to match your nature with Nature.

“When you call me close to tell me
your body is not beautiful
I want to summon the eyes
and hidden mouths
of stone and light and water
to testify against you.”

— Leonard Cohen

Cactus Blossom-1496 art blogTanuri Ridge Beauty — Computer Art by kenne

A cactus blossom 
greeting
early morning
walkers
as the sun rises
casting
long shadows
across
the Catalinas,
opening
not as a rose
lasting
for days
providing only
one brief moment
passing by
I share the
moment.

Wild women and

wildflowers

turned on

by red and blue

each not for

plucking

only looking —

do not fear

roaming eyes.

The many will follow the beaten track
With guideposts on the way.
They live and have lived for ages back
With a chart for every day.
Someone has told them it’s safe to go
On the road he has traveled o’er,
And all that they ever strive to know
Are the things that were known before.

— from “The Things That Haven’t Been Done Before” by Edgar Guest
