The difference between a flower and a weed is a judgment!
Today, I completed a short hike through Saquaro National Park East, not too far from my home. During my walk, I came across many different wildflowers along the roadside, as well as many saguaros, including some that had seen better days. While some would say these wildflowers are weeds, I really didn't care, because they were beautiful and are really a precursor to our cacti which will begin to bloom later this month.
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
I was born and raised in the cold country of Minnesota. After spending thirty seven years in education, retirement in Arizona was my answer. Today, my interests and passions include traveling, playing tennis and being with my grandchildren.
