Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden

Just came back from a fabulous trip to Arizona visiting Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Sedona.  I read many good reviews about the Desert Botanical Garden and was looking forward to it.  It totally exceeded my expectation because it's not the normal botanical garden I'm used to in East Coast.  It was eye opening and I learnt a lot of things about succulents.

The daytime temperature was in the nineties but I didn't think it was unbearable probably because it's desert heat, it's different from NY summers.  I'll be posting pictures here on my blog and in my flickr in the next few weeks.  So stay tune!

Look at all the cactus for sale!

  1. Beautiful photos, Louise! I’d love to visit AZ sometime. Wish we could grow more cacti here.

  2. Great photos Louise! You’re very talented! Did you go to La Grande Orange too?

  3. Jen – when I saw all those cactus for sale I was so tempted to buy them but I know they won’t do good in NY weather.

    Fern – Thank you for your nice comment. Yes I did go to La Grande Orange! Their breakfast and bakery goods are awesome. Just thinking about it makes me hungry.

  4. A dream trip, for sure!!! That botanical garden is on my list of places to see before I die!!! Love Chihuly glass also! Great cactus and succulent photos!!!!

  5. Julie – Thanks! The botanical garden is a must see when you go to Phoenix, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.
