Deset Garden

I am back in Paris but have this saved post from Arizona.

I’ve been reading about the Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden for some time and the other evening Maurice and I went there right before sunset to escape walking around in the sun and hoping to get good light for photos.

There was a butterfly pavillion and we saw many, including this one with neon green in its wings. I was surprised to be able to see the screen behind it through the wings.

The best shot I got with evening light with one of the McDowel Mountains in the background.

Cactus all over the place, planted there along well tended paths.

Pretty architectural details.

Strange sajuaro head-not often seen.

Art work in the light after the sun set.

I would love to be here when they do Christmas lights.

There was a full moon although this sort of looks like the sun. One of these days I hope to get a good shot of the moon with my iPhone.

  1. The butterfly shot is spectacular. Love that sujauro! She looks as though she’s all plumed and headed for a ball at Versailles.
