Pictures from Phoenix and sometimes from the surrounding cities that make up the "Valley of the Sun"

This is a new plant at the Desert Botanical Garden that I discovered on my last trip there. It has tiny purple flowers on it and a sign that called it a "Sky Flower" with a Latin name of Duranta erecta. It looks similar to a plant I've seen before that is called a "Sapphire Shower" but these flowers are much smaller than the ones on the shower plant. The lovely purple color with that splash of yellow in the background is perfect for the Easter holiday weekend.
