Desert Botanical Garden: Chihuly, Part 1
As you may recall from previous issues, one of my favorite places in Phoenix is the Desert Botanical Garden. I love the rich variety of desert flora and fauna — so very different from that of temperate or even tropical climes. Recently, they held a special exhibit — Chihuly: the Nature of Glass — which I visited some weeks ago. I was so impressed, that I sent a special message to you, my friends and family, to make sure you did not miss it if you live in the Phoenix area or if you were visiting. Yesterday was the last day of the exhibit — if you were snoozing, your loss. However, in the next few issues, I will share my photos from the exhibit — I guess it is the next best thing to being there.

The tour continues next week...

Life is good.
