Desert Willow

When you visit the Pollinator Garden at Raincatcher’s, please take a moment to walk in the garden and see how beautiful and large the desert willow has grown. Tom Wilten would be proud! He gave us this tree just last year, and it’s happily blooming away. I wonder how many trees owe their lives to Tom’s passion for propagating and teaching us how to do it, too? What a wonderful legacy.
