The Desert Botanical Garden tops my list of must-sees when I visit Phoenix. There’s something about the cactus, the blossoms I’ll never see back east, the colors. Oh, and I love the quail. But what really gets me every time is the textures. Some look like I should run my hand across their furry curves — and I know when I’ve been deceived. Ouch. Others are clearly stand-offish, angry-looking or even aggressive. No, I promise, I won’t go anywhere near you.
But prickly or feathery, the gardens are filled with magic.
Take a look. Isn’t it all lovely?
I understand there is a wonderful exhibit of light sculptures in the Phoenix Botanical Garden this year.
You are right. Bruce Monro: Sonoran Light is now open. Caught a glimpse of it. Looks amazing. Info: http://www.dbg.org/events/bruce-munro-sonoran-light
