Reward

Yesterday I made another trip to the Desert Botanical Garden.  It won’t be long before it will be too hot to be out-doors so I want to get as much spring time visits in as I can.  Every time I go I’m always rewarded with some wonderful sight.  This was my reward yesterday!

Sharon, you count a visit to the Desert Botanical Gardens at the end of May as Springtime in Phoenix? I think it is already summer. You are looking at Phoenix through rose-colored glasses, or cactus-flowered glasses.

Sharon, you keep so busy and we are rewarded with the beauty you display. I love seeing the different flowers from the desert southwest.

That is so beautiful. I wanted to go here on Saturday but time just got away from me. No we did get the chance to stop at Macayos. We had just left the Starbucks at Park Central when I took this shot.

Oh my, that's a wonderful flower. The word that springs to mind is "regal" - like a queen of flowers.
