Becca came over and harvested the fruit off of our saguaros. Did you know it takes 75 years of growing before a saguaro grows a side arm? They can live for over 150 years! The Tohono O’odham tribe used to get fat on the fruit.
A bird has gotten fat on this saguaro fruit.
The fruit is delicious. Very slightly sweet with tiny black crunchy seeds inside.
A couple of things Sylvia taught me yesterday…
Unicorns eat pretzels for breakfast.
You can make a dress with fabric, scissors and painter’s tape.
Sylvia made this dress for Hazel while I was having an afternoon snooze.
Farewell party for the Jones’s.
Two women I love and admire, Juliet and Julie.
Credence and Luke

Julie Jones was the first friend I made when I moved to Tucson. Julie is funny, talented and beautiful and I have learned so much from her. I am feeling very sorry for myself right now but so happy for them. I love you Julie.
Cornstarch, food coloring, and water = my favorite paint. It’s cheap, safe and easy to clean up. I know I need it to be the way Sylvia uses it 🙂
We love summer in Tucson. One fun summer activity is walking to Campbell Ave. under the Rillito Wash to see the bats come out.
With the boys away at scout camp this week, we thought we would go hang out on 4th Ave. and have a snack at the Food Conspiracy Co-op.
