An Afternoon Stroll
A bit of time wandering the Desert Botanical Gardens as the sun set is exactly what I needed yesterday. And of course, with a wet winter, mild spring and warm weather upon us, the gardens couldn’t have put on a more vibrant show to welcome visitors. When people say the desert is so drab and olive, I wonder if they are really looking? The purple undertones of cactus, the coral orange edges of aloe, the fuchsia blooms, red poppies.
Yes, there is a lot of sage green. But no one wears camo to the prom. And the desert right now is dolled up, happy and looking like she’s about to be crowned belle of the ball.
