Petals, Posies, and a Palette of Desert Color

People may imagine the desert to be drab, dusty, and colorless. But the desert is actually home to many wildflowers, as I discovered recently at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, Arizona.

Beautiful photos Angie. I especially like your cover photo too of the sunset. Glad you are enjoying new places and trying new things. Life is an adventure if you take advantage of all the things that you can do. Blessings from NC, Jan

You're right - that's a lot of unexpected color for desert flora. Very nice!
