“We are plants which—

whether we like to admit it to ouselves or not—

must with our roots rise out of the earth

in order to bloom in the ether and to bear fruit.”

With just a few days left in July, Tucson has already received 5.71 inches of rain, making this the fourth-wettest July.
I have recorded 7 inches on our patio in the Catalina Foothills. This amount of rain will help Southern Arizona recover
from the ongoing drought, improving from a D4-exceptional drought to a D3-extreme drought (National Weather Service).
There are indications that monsoon activity will start uo again toward the end of the week.

Lacepod Mustard   Leave a comment

Lacepod Mustard — Image by kenne

Lacepod Mustard is a common species found throughout Arizona in various habitats below 4,000 feet. 

It has a distinctive rounded or oval-shaped fruit with small perforations around its perimeter. 

The plant is rather drab-looking and inconspicuous, but the distinctive rounded fruits are most exciting and

appealing. I captured this image along the Esperero Trail in Sabino Canyon, April 2013.
