Desert Color

Arixona is much more than Prickly Cactus

Arizona -- Much More than Cactus

If you love botanical gardens and you love art installations in a natural setting and you love surprises at every turn of the walking trail, then you will love the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, Arizona.

Dale Chihuly has an exhibit, The Nature of Glass, running there through the end of May, 2009. If you are anywhere in the area, I highly recommend a stop. Reservations are required.

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.

  3. I’ve also seen Chihuly’s work at Kew Gardens in London, wonderful, much of it was floating on the lake and in ponds, got to love the colours.
