Spring Flowers, Tucson, Part 29: Huisache (aka Sweet Acacia, aka Vachellia farnesiana)

Huisache is apparently from Nahuatl and means ‘many thorns,’ as per the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center Database (linked). It’s a leguminous tree—an adjective I happen to especially love for whatever reason. ‘Leguminous’ …. I mean… it’s kind of delightful. But these trees are wonderful!!!

Check out the other pictures I’ve posted of Tucson’s bloom this spring:
