David Stone’s “Regal Horned Lizard” of ferro-cement, steel wire, and mesh at Tohono Chul is so realistic that I almost expected a gigantic tongue to flick out to scoop up a trio of snacks, despite the somewhat pleasant expression on its face. Thank goodness none of them are actually this big!!

If you live anywhere in the Tucson area, you really must visit Tohono Chul. Sometime during your visit, stop at the cafe and have a prickly pear lemonade. The color is beautiful, the taste sublime. If your taste inclines to alcohol, you can get a prickly pear margarita or mimosa instead. We didn’t order food, but everything sounded delicious and if you have a membership at one of a number of gardens, you might be able to get in free.
