Prickly pear skeleton from the yard, backlit, at night. Love me some natural treasures.

Hey Y'all! Hope everyone had a good Earth Day! I spent my Earth Weekend checking out @greenthingsnursery (fun fact my mom said she shopped their with my dad in the "we're not having kids" era of their marriage😊) and making a visit to Rosie the Corpse Flower (and friends 🦋) at the @tucsonbotanical gardens.

And finally hamming it up as Sailor Palo Verde.🙃🌼🏵🌻

What odd little conundrums many of our minds are. Some of us are our own allies, our very own warriors, and some of us seem to incessantly train to be our own worst adversaries, our own personal downfalls. Instead of reaping the invigoration of an open mind/heart, we often shrink our own worlds and perceptions just to fit in.
.
To be jaded or cynical is sometimes seen as being smart, savvy, or experienced. Unable to be fooled or deceived. To be optimistic or happy may be seem childish or stupid; and to some, to be seen as such is worse than death. Better to be safely cynical than vulnerably joyful? Misery can feel like it has a firmer foundation, so much less to lose...?
.
And we often don’t know what we want. Some ask for a better world with more love and less hate, then proceed to ridicule and express disgust when they see couples in love, or pick apart something positive. Some of us post inspirational quotes about lifting each other up—strong women support each other, right?—and then stare cold-blooded at the female cashier like she’s our enemy and we’ve got our superiority to prove.
.
Some of us see an imbalance—maybe for example a lack of diversity, too much airbrushed perfection, intolerance of different bodies, etc., and it’s not enough that we ask for a richer, more real array of humans to grace our magazines or feeds, but in the name of justice we attack the “other side” and feed it just as much grotesque name-calling and hate as we claim to be receiving. All in the name of justice and growth.

Arizona Skeleton Milkweed, this was a new one for me today. From a distance it looked like a giant wild garlic, but it lost all similarities up close.

Let's see how many photos of cactus flowers I can take this spring.

Enjoying the bees enjoying our desert bloom. Yellow and orange Prickly Pear, Buckhorn Cholla and Teddy Bear Cholla. #sonorandesert #desert #flowers #flower #bee #bees #az #arizona #cactus #cacti #pricklypear #buckhorncholla #teddybearcholla #cholla
flavor of spring desert: cactus medicine. munching on fresh harvested & boiled cholla buds after an afternoon of communal harvesting. long before colonial government campaigns pushed cow milk, cholla buds have provided the necessary calcium & vital minerals for original people of this desert. I’m so grateful to learn from generous relatives who share with me these ways of remembering nourishment. 📷 @quetzal.cihuatl #sonorandesert #chollabuds #ancestralfoods #decolonizeyourdiet

You know, as we conserve and protect 800+ of Arizona's species, our biologists put a lot of thought not only into the animals themselves, but also into their habitats, the regions they live in and even worldwide patterns.
It really becomes clear that what happens on one side of the planet will eventually make it to the other, in some way. 
So, since we all live here, let's start with this #EarthDay and just keep caring every day! Hope you all had a happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day! 🌎 Today shouldn't be the only day to love this big rock in space we call our home. Our planet has so many beautiful things to drool over, like this ocotillo. What's your favorite plant or thing on our planet?

You know, AZ’s got regular forests too, but where else can you see a saguaro forest?

Meet the Huachuca Mountain Rocktrumpet (Mandevilla brachysiphon) which grows on rocky slopes and plains in the desert grassland, often on limestone. This wonderfully fragrant night bloomer can grow in full to part sun and is hardy to about 10°F.  #grownative #thedesertisbeautiful #arizona #tucson #arizonanativeplants #sonorandesert #skyislands #wildlifegardening
Will hike in the desert with the promise of seeing waterfalls.🧗🏼‍♀️

Happy Earth Day!! We have been teaching our almost 4 year old how to recycle.  We started doing recycling activities like sorting out cans, paper, ect so that she could learn what goes where.  This picture is a reminder from nature that we must conserve it 💚
