One of the places I enjoy visiting here in Tucson is Tohono Chul Park. It is close enough that I can make a quick trip there when I need to clear my head and spend a little time photographing some of our local flora and fauna. When I went on Thursday morning we had just had a hard freeze and while I have styrofoam cups on the tops of my fence post cacti, I hadn’t really considered that they’d do the same at Tohono Chul. I thought this photo represents perfectly winter in Tucson.
Pima Animal Care Center is running a Valentine’s Day inspired adoption drive this month with $14 adoptions for all pets six months and older. All pets adopted from PACC come with a microchip, are spayed or neutered, and are up-to-date on their medical care which includes at minimum current vaccines. This pretty cat is Leonidos (A547210). He was brought to PACC when his owner’s roommate got two dogs.
