It is the start of June and here in the southeastern part of Arizona it is beginning to get hot again. Fires are starting up again on BLM and Forest Service lands. Spring didn’t last long here. But being here for over a year now it has been amazing watching the seasons change in the desert and watching the different plant species come up as well. It is interesting that there are still species blooming. This time last year there was nothing blooming – not even the creosote was blooming. But, it will be a good summer here. We have some large projects that we will be working on, and then heading into another seed collection season. :).
