If you’re visiting Tucson, I highly recommend you check out the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. It’s a hybrid botanical garden and zoo designed to educate visitors about the Sonora Desert.
While you can’t go ten feet without seeing a saguaro cactus in Tucson and the Saguaro National Park is well worth visiting, at the Desert Museum, I re-discovered my passion for agave. Here’s a photo post with my best shots from their Agave Garden.
I am usually good about taking a photo of the placard next to each plant so I can remember the name of it, but there were a couple I couldn’t find. Can you help me name them?
I’m thinking of printing one or more of these. Which agave photo do you like best? I’d love it if you’d drop me a note in the comments. Thanks!
Now on to the agave…
If you are visiting Arizona, I recommend you take time to visit Tucson. It’s a fun city with lots of great art, food, drink and outdoor activities. I have certainly enjoyed my time here.
