Bloom Watch #5 – That’s A Wrap

July 12, 2021

The preceding rain had cooled the air, turning a hot June day into a welcoming summer’s evening. In the twilight we waited with the anticipation of a child as the flowers unfurled. The precious dozen bloomed with the beauty of a lotus and the resilience of a Sonoran desert. It was a treat to spend this special time with you.

Thank you to all the members that made it out that night and the morning after to visit The Queen. Thank you to all the staff and volunteers that worked so hard to make it possible. Especially to the Desert Keepers that worked tirelessly in the hot sun to prepare the trail and to Leith Young for deciphering The Queen’s movement all month and calling the night this year.
