On the Road……Central Tucson’s Palo Verdes

I’m back in the desert, but recovering from an awful case of pneumonia valley fever — which is not good at all.

Nonetheless, I saw this lovely Palo Verde (Parkinsonia florida), which is Arizona’s state tree, while riding to pick-up my Honda from the dealership over on 22nd St.

These trees have green branches and trunks to help with photosynthesis, which comes in handy during droughts when the Palo Verde drops its leaves.
