Desert Botanical Garden, Phoenix, AZ

Nope!This isn't Who-ville,
and these aren't Whos.

This is Denny and Marty,
our friends who enabled us to have such a grand time!
This is the most amazing glass sculpture!


And here we are... SG and hubby!
It still looks as though we just stepped off that little speck of dust! ;-)
On Saturday, April 4, we visited the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix.
You need to click Right Here to visit the display of blown glass.
It's amazing, and for the most part, fit right into the landscapes.

I will not feature the rest of the glasswork here.
You'll see great photos through the link.
This post will give you an idea of some of the wonderful things we enjoyed.
None of the photos are identified...
Have fun!
:-)

I'm sorry I didn't take a clearer photo.
Do you get an idea of the size of this little cactus?




Blue flowers seem to be unusual.

Thank you for sharing your delightful photos of the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix. It's been eons (Mr. Ho-Hum, then boyfriend, at U of A) since I've visited a desert!

Phoenix C. Yes, for sure!
