Desert Botanical Gardens

We don’t go out of town any more often than necessary, but the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix is worth the two-hour trip.  Our next-door neighbors presented us with passes to Chihuly: The Nature of Glass, a special exhibit scheduled from November 22, 2008 through May 31, 2009.  We expanded our visit to include the Marshall Butterfly Pavilion and the Patio Cafe.  On Don and Helen’s advice we arrived early in the afternoon and left just before closing so we could see the glass sculptures by both day and night.

The Desert Botanical Garden was one of our first stops when we arrived in Arizona on our way to a new home in Tucson.  No visit to Phoenix is complete without a stop there.
