Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, Arizona. What looks like sparkling green cacti are in fact shimmering glass sculptures by artist Dale Chihuly. As spectacular as these cacti were, the gardens were full of equally dramatic and beautiful succulents and cactus and wildflowers blooming and growing in the middle of the desert.
You can click on the link above to check out the Garden's website. This blog will begin blooming with more links to wonderful places as we move through our course - so if you'd like to contribute one or more - please feel free!
See you on Friday!
