Desert Botanical Garden - Phoenix AZ
CHIHULY garden art among the cactus "The Nature of Glass":
I've never seen garden art quite like this! Every color and shape of hand blown glass works scattered among the cacti. Quite a sight. My favorite was the boat full of blue squiggly things titled "Blue and Purple Boat". I was imagining that in my front yard!
The Phoenix gardens must have hundreds of varieties of agave. We were particular interested in the impression of the spines on the younger leaves. A blue on blue pattern.

Our visit to these gardens was on my last day in Arizona. Another bright blue, warm and sunny day. I'm soaking up all the sunshine I can before I get on my plane and head back to Boston.
