Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden

Here are a few photos from my lovely trip to the Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden on April 17.

The Desert Botanical Garden is a great place, especially in spring (mid March through April).  If you go, plan to spend a few hours.  Don't go when it's hot.  And save money by checking out a culture pass at your local library.  It'll give you two free entries, worth almost $50.
