Observation of the Day

This observation of the day is a native, perennial, flower called the Doubting Mariposa Lily (Calochortus ambiguus)
Isn’t there something peaceful about this flower? If I were a bee, I would totally nap in this flower!

Observation of the Day

How exciting to see that Rocky Mountain Bee Plant (Cleome serrulata) is now flowering in Coconino County! This plant often grows in clusters, and plants can grow over 4 feet tall. Many pollinators are a fan of the rocky mountain bee plant, and we are also fond of it. Do you know any fun facts about this plant?

Observation of the Day

Today's observation is a small tree called the New Mexico Locust (Robinia neomexicana). You may be able to tell by this plant's flowers that it is part of the pea family, Fabaceae. This plant is native to the southwestern United States, and can often be found in areas disturbed by fire. Have you seen the New Mexico Locust flowering in Coconino County?
