With Christmas approaching, the staff has the gardens decorated and illuminated for the holidays, when they open them evenings to dinner, music and nature talks.
Walking through the gardens, I could not help but comparing with our little Nature Coast gardens...boy do we have so much to do! In any case, the gardeners in Phoenix have a lot to be proud of with their Botanical Gardens.
With our flight leaving a little after 1 PM, we decided to arise early to head to the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix. What a wonderful collection of cacti, succulents desert animals and plants.
