4″ of rain fell over the last week. Butterflies, dragon flies, and other fauna are as happy as humans for those showers downpours.
But plants look as good as ever at the UTEP Chihuahuan Desert Gardens, on this mild 85-ish Sunday afternoon. Including some species proven to be bulletproof, yet are uncommon. And it’s pollination time!
After a mountain bike ride with a new friend, I was near a public project I designed a few years ago as part of an Architect-client project team. Built by one of the countless contractors and people with Martinez in the name!
It was a pleasant day, so I looked at what I could see from my car and cell phone camera (sorry for the blurring).
