Brinton Desert Botanical Garden

Yesterday, I went over to Mesa, Arizona. My CPA that does my taxes lives in this neighborhood that is right next door to Brinton Desert Botanical Gardens. In the eight years he has done our taxes, I never went to the gardens until now. I didn't have time yesterday (always so busy). I made a special trip over there today just to check it out.
What a cool place! I must have taken 100 pictures - no one else was there - what a nice day.Posted by Picasa

My grandfather sent me the magazine Arizona Highways when I was little. I loved looking at the pictures. When he came to visit he and I would spend hours looking at his pictures in his viewmaster. He would always tell me that the desert was not like people think it is.

Mildred: Even though it's a bit of a drive over there, I'm going to put it on my places to go when I need a break.
Susie: Have you ever tried any cactus in your garden?
Lanny: What amazes me the most is when these cactus bloom. They produce such unique flowers.
