It’s too hot to talk a long walk in the Arizona low desert in July, but I’ve gone out every morning to walk my dog (sans camera, because it’s just not practical to try to take pictures when your pooch has other priorities).

Either way, I was delighted to find them. Here’s the location when I went back with my camera several hours later, and the high sun wasn’t casting as much shade:


And a few more shots of the lovely fruit (they’ll ripen when the weather gets cooler, months from now):
