June is the hottest month in beautiful Tucson, and it started off with a bang this year. The first week of the month is matching and setting new daily records. The middle of the month will bring in the Monsoon Season, and the summer rains will be welcome across our beautiful, parched desert.
Cicadas are singing in the trees between our home and Golden Gate Mountains, and a Momma Gambels Quail just started a family in a large philodendron outside our living room window.
Tucson is a destination town. Saguaro National Park (east and west, 30 miles apart) is like nothing else in North America, and after flowering in May, the saguaro fruit are ripening this month.
