Springtime In Picacio Peak State Park   Leave a comment

Picacio Peak State Park — Image by kenne

“In 1848, the Mormon Battalion constructed a wagon road through Picacho Pass. The forty-niners on their way
to California used this road. In the late 1850’s the Butterfield Overland Stage was carrying passengers through
this area. Picacho Peak’s most noted historic event occurred on April 15, 1862, when Confederate and Union
scouting parties met in the Battle of Picacho Pass during the Civil War. This was the largest Civil War clash to
take place in Arizona.”

My pace is slower
Hiking Sabino Canyon
On the trails I love.

I keep on hiking
Driven by native senses
To record nature.

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.

Verdin On A Brittlebush In Sabino Canyon   Leave a comment

Even with last week’s good rainfall, most brittlebush plants are not blooming as would normally be this time of year. We have had a very dry winter, even so, these two plants were located near one another.

When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it,

it’s your world for the moment.

I want to give that world to someone else.

Most people in the city rush around so,

they have no time to look at a flower.

I want them to see it whether they want to or not.

The Sonoran Desert Is Turning Into A Sea Of Floral Yellow   3 comments

Brittlebush Blooming In The Sonoran Desert — Images by kenne

With good rains earlier this month the Sonoran desert is beginning to explode into a colorful display that changes the brown desert landscape into a sea of floral yellow. With a little rain, this common desert scrub will begin to bloom and will do so almost year round. I last posted brittlebush blossom images two months ago.

“You say I am repeating
Something I have said before. I shall say it again.
Shall I say it again? In order to arrive there,
To arrive where you are, to get from where you are not,
You must go by a way wherein there is no ecstasy.
In order to arrive at what you do not know
You must go by a way which is the way of ignorance.
In order to possess what you do not possess
You must go by the way of dispossession.
In order to arrive at what you are not
You must go through the way in which you are not.
And what you do not know is the only thing you know
And what you own is what you do not own
And where you are is where you are not.”

— T. S. Eliot
