Desert Botanical Garden / Phoenix

The plan to go on an excursion with Connie today fell through because she took Bill to the ear doctor and it took longer than expected.

Instead, I headed out to the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix by myself. It was a warm, sunny day and I made the mistake of only wearing a sleeveless top.

As a result, I didn't spend as much time at the garden as I would have liked... in the interest of saving my skin from turning direct from white to red. I'm working on getting a tan, not turning into a lobster.

Anyway, I did take a lot of pictures. Here is a link to the complete album. Some good, some not so good due to the direction of the sun The picture above is actually glass art, not real plants.

In spite of all the traffic down here, I don't mind driving around. Even though it gets jammed at times, for the most part traffic moves along pretty good due to an abundance of lanes. There are up to 7 lanes going each way on the freeways... and almost always 4 - 6 depending on the location. You still have to watch for the crazies who zip in and out of traffic in a hazardous way, but you get that anywhere I guess.

Tomorrow is a scheduled oil change and 30,000 mile check-up for my trusty traveling companion.

Stay tuned...
