The Desert Museum is truly one of my Tucson favorites, and another reason so many of us like to call Tucson our home.
Summer Saturday Evenings continue at the Desert Museum through August 25. There is discounted admission after 4pm and members get in free, of course.

Summer gardening at our Tucson homes is always a challenge. But with the right choice of plants and proper care, even the searing heat of summer can produce some gorgeous plants as well as tasty herbs for your Tucson kitchen. Herbs such as basil, oregano thyme and even mint love the heat, though a little protective shade can help for the really hot sunny days. My favorite is basil and I am always looking for new recipes to use up my over-supply.
A good place to get started with your Tucson summer garden is the Monsoon Madness Plant Sale at Tohono Chul Park this Friday and Saturday (July 27 and 28.) Check out their website for hours and more details. Tohono Chul Park Monsoon Madness Plant Sale
