Tucson has a disappointing lack of respect for its history. Small enclaves of restoration and gentrification exist, but large swaths of our history have been bulldozed for a convention center, cheaply made highrise dorms, and student housing disguised as six bedroom houses with four car garages. This building will doubtless be gone soon, solid brick construction replaced by cheap stick and stucco.
Desert willows are one of the few trees which lose their leaves in the mild Tucson winter. They more than make up for it with these beautiful magenta blossoms which are lovely from bud to shriveled husk.
