Here is the 22nd segment of "Team Tucson" - a feature I post from time to time that shines a spotlight on the people who make Tucson a great place to live. I am pleased to introduce you to Dr. Jarchow, Tucson's tortoise and reptile expert, who is giving this tortoise his (her?) annual exam.
Here are beautiful desert flowers that fight back the desert heat! These beauties don't need water and our intense sun doesn't wilt them. These hollyhocks are glass blown pieces of art for your garden or living room. They are available at Harlow's, my favorite plant place!
Just the other day as I was walking my pups around the neighborhood I was admiring all of the sage bushes in bloom in my neighbors' yards. And I wondered why mine was lagging behind and looking less-than-stellar. This morning I opened my front door and VOILA! My sage bushes had bloomed overnight! Beautiful.
Love the Southwest? Love Tucson? Every day on "Tucson Daily Photo" you'll see a new image that might be beautiful, unusual, fun, or maybe even inspirational.

TDP Gift shop ~ fun stuff!
Using the "Monday already?" ram photo that so many of you loved, I have created a t-shirt and a mousepad. You can purchase them on ETSY at the "TotallyTucson" store. Click here to shop.
Part of the sale proceeds goes to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum (the permanent home of the ram). Guaranteed to make you smile and make those Mondays better!
Thanks for stopping by for a little "walk around" photo tour of beautiful Tucson, AZ. I hope you enjoy the trip! Please post your comments about the Tucson photos on Tucson Daily Photo! Contact me at: TucsonDailyPhoto@gmail.com
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
