My relationship to plants becomes closer and closer.
They make me quiet; I like to be in their company.

(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.

A Secondhand Blossom 

When picturing a wildflower
I see the blossom
not the seeds.

Picture a dandelion,
a pretty yellow wildflower
not named after its
annoying seeds.

Picture a silverpuff,
a pretty yellow wildflower
with toothed rays
radiating star-like points

only to be named after its
beautiful silver globe seeds —
a secondhand blossom.
