During frigid February days in New England, I was happily transported by photos Julie Shaw texted during her brief family vacation in Arizona. Inspired by those radiant images from that distinctly different landscape, I asked her to share some in a post on Pleasures of Plants. Fortunately for all viewers, she responded with the following images, including well-researched enlightening captions and notes.
Photos 1, 2, and 3 are by Julie Shaw. Photos 4, 5, and 6 are by Susie Shaw.
These photos were all taken in late February at the Tanque Verde Ranch in Tucson, Arizona.
Many thanks to Julie Shaw and Susie Shaw for sharing their photos and perspectives!
