Pea Family Visitor

Photos and Text (lightly edited) by Mark Hengesbaugh, 12/10/2015

It was a quiet morning in Sabino Canyon parking lot, where all the patrollers are smart and all the naturalists are good looking (and smarter). Nothing out of the ordinary, that is, until a pair of vigilant eyes spotted what appeared to be the mammoth pod of a plant in the pea family. Highly trained naturalists Jean Hengesbaugh and Anne Green tasted the seeds and concluded that shape and texture indicate this rolling pea-holder is modeled after Arachis hypogaea.
