Those Sunny Days of Arizona

I love to retrieve a place again whenever the need arises.  And so as we enter the dark days of winter, it’s time to revisit the land of the Sun, where palm trees reach high into clear blue skies.

And the heat is almost unbearable you think as you walk the trails of the Desert Botanical Garden.

Where desert plants thrive and cacti abound, including my favorite, the saguaro.

These cacti crawl like snakes on the ground.

While this purple variety is pure loveliness.

So is the monarch feeding on desert flowers

And the quail standing coyly among the thorns.

Was it only last month?

    • Thank you! I really enjoyed the visit to the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix. The variety of plants was amazing and from all over the world. I loved the purple cactus too! 🙂

    • Thanks Lauren! I enjoyed visiting the Botanical Garden in Phoenix which showcases desert plants from around the world. I think that one is a ‘purple prickly pear’ but I’m not certain.

  1. I always love to see cacti, something we don’t have here of course.
    The sun is out here today, but there is still ice on the ground…
    Best wishes, Pete.
