Anniversary Post


Today marks seven years since I started this daily photo blog and I'm happy to say that I haven't missed a single day.  Even when I've been away, I managed to post using blogger's scheduler.  I can't tell you all how much I've enjoyed doing this.  This project has given me an opportunity to make new friends from all over the world and to see my own city in a whole different way.  I love it and I think I'll keep on going for at least another seven years!

I thought I'd mark the occasion with a recent photo of the Chihuly Wildflower Towers at the entrance to the Desert Botanical Garden on a rare cloudy day.  You've seen them on this site many times before.  They are so beautiful that my camera is drawn to them almost every time I go to the garden (and that's quite a lot as most of you know).  I probably have more photos of these glass sculptures than any other thing in Phoenix!

That's quite an anniversary, Sharon. Your photographs of the Valley of the Sun are a morning ritual for so many of us. Thank you!

PDP is a few months older than VDP, congrats Sharon! It is addictive, isn't it? You've expressed my thoughts exactly, the really good side is learning about your city, other cities, other countries and yes, of course, meeting people!!! Bon anniversaire, here's to at least 7 more!!!

I went to see a Chihuly exhibit at DBG but it was only on loan. Are some of these sculptures permanent?
