I spent the afternoon at the Desert Botanical Gardens today. It was a really lovely day in the mid-60s, with some intense sun. Visiting gardens always makes me wish that I had a garden of my own. I came away with a lot of inspiration.
They had a whole herb garden that I was particularly interested in. So many chile varieties, and more rosemary that I had ever seen.
But I would say that the Monarch butterfly house was the highlight of the visit. Because it was a slightly chilly day, the butterflies were all lazily sunning themselves.
They decorated the trees like beautiful flowers, or perhaps Christmas ornaments.
