Tucson has a green thumb!

Definitely a bright spot in an otherwise boring intersection! This gigantic desert bloom is the creation of Hank Saxe and Cynthia Patterson who were striving to pay homage to our desert vegetation and also recognize the local importance of the Pascua Yaqui Indians.  The flower is to remind viewers of the "powerful and mysterious presence" of the Pascua culture in our region. This massive bloom is just plain fun to look at!
