One reason to love the desert

I love walking out into the courtyard as the sun is just coming up over the Rincon Mountains.  This plant with the rather nondescript flowers has the most delicious scent of warm melted chocolate, hence its name, Chocolate Flower.

Packrats, rabbits and ground squirrels appear to have no interest in it, either.  Surprising, because the rest of our property seems to be an all-you-can-eat buffet for rodents.
