Who says the desert isn’t beautiful?

Walk with us, won't you?

The desert has it’s own sense of style and we found a glorious respite at the spectacular Sonoran Desert Botanical Garden.

Near the entrance we came across these incredible glass sculptures and knew we were in for something special.

Chihuly Glass

Near the entrance we came across these incredible Chihuly glass sculptures and knew we were in for something special, because along with the creative genus of Mother Nature there is a stunning exhibition of glass sculptures intermingled throughout the garden.ย  To learn more about these fabulous pieces of work, read here.ย  There are moments in life when words fail me and I rely on my camera to do the talking for me.

We had no idea this garden existed, it was only at the strong suggestion of a friend that we gave thought to going.ย  When we looked online and saw the entrance fee of $22/adult, I admit I hesitated because it seemed a bit pricey and we only had a few hours, but the morning dawned beautifully and that was the deciding factor.

I’ve never seen anything so out of place be so absolutely perfect at the same time and the only thing I can think of that would be better than strolling these gardens would be to witness Las Noches de las Luminarias, which must be just breathtaking!
