Finally. After 8 months of working in Phoenix, AZ, I made it to the Botanic Gardens. It has been on the life bus list of “things to do” for a while!
Some people think the desert is brown and boring. I personally LOVE it. I love the variations of cacti and their colorful blooms. I must say, at first you don’t notice much difference in the landscape, but after you have had a chance to absorb the environment, you start to see all kinds of beautiful textures and patterns.
My favorites are the 75 + Year old Saguaros that are only found in this part of North America (Arizona, California, Mexico).
The best time to be in the desert, is in May when everything is in full bloom. In the meantime, these February images will have to do. Enjoy!
