Weekend Adventures, part 3


On Saturday morning I drove in a different direction east of Phoenix to visit the Boyce Thompson Arboretum just outside of Superior Arizona.  I couldn't have picked a better day.  The wildflowers were blooming everywhere I turned and the weather was perfect with a wonderful cool breeze keeping the Arizona heat at bay.


I followed many of the paths admiring the gorgeous flowers and all the special garden areas that are there to enjoy.  Of course, I was taking photos as I went.

Love these photos - the saturated look. Fantastic colors. It's hard to beat a great day in Arizona!

Thanks so much for stopping by L & L Photography!

Can you believe we broke the record for low temperature this morning? It was 46 degrees at 8 am! Unheard of!
