We caught it at a good time to see plenty of blooming plants. It was really colorful!
And no surprise here - but there was a lot of cacti. What surprised me was the many different varieties of the same kind,- like prickly pear cactus
And familiar plants
The real bonus was all the Chihuly sculptures integrated into different landscapes and gardens.
They were all around but one never got the feeling of it being too much...
Back near the entrance to the gardens a couple of distinct ones
We even saw a cactus sun dial.
Unique and surprisingly accurate!
I can see why they have memberships and season tickets here -- one time through was definitely not enough time. But it was worth it and a real highlight of our time in the area!
