Popping up on the dry desert floor

New sharing space with the old

We are alive and well in the desert

Taking morning hikes in the cool air.

when I paint

the canvas grows

getting attention

through the window

coaxing the shadows

by invisible lines

letting the colors

come to life

I attend to this moment
less it goes unattended
by the bee flying
in and out of time
only to be lost in a
wild thyme unseen
just to be conquered 
and reconciled again.

(Click on any image to see a larger view in a slideshow format.)

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.

I look at nature

Knowing its beauty is there

Because we see it.

I love this planet… I want to see the environment preserved and I want to see the human race preserved. And I’d like to see everybody living decently in a more equitable, kind-hearted, thoughtful, generous world.

Keep close to Nature’s heart…

and break clear away, once in awhile,

and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods.

Wash your spirit clean.

Streptanthus carinatus – Lyreleaf Jewelflower (1 of 1)-2 art blog

These vase-shaped buds have pedals giving a tassel effect to the top of each bud,
opening just enough for bees and other pollinators to get inside the bud. This desert
wildflower has a tall slender stem and was photographed near Sabino Creek
in Sabino Canyon.
