On our upcoming trip to Phoenix, Gerry and I will be visiting the Desert Botanical Garden. It will be nice to see a little bit of desert flora that is not easily spotted in Canada. The Garden houses several trails that you can wonder and explore. It also provides you with a fun and interactive experience that both educated and exhilarates.
The Desert Botanical Gardens house numerous exhibits throughout the year. This means that this place is constantly evolving and changing. When we will be there the Chihuly exhibit will take place which will showcase multiple installations and artworks by artist Dale Chihuly. There are always a number of other events such as ‘ask the gardener’, garden flashlight tours, and garden discovery sessions.
If you are more into the fauna than the flora, the Gardens also offer a morning bird walk among the Garden trails with a bird expert. It is wonderful to see the birds zoom in and out of the dessert flora. To get the most out of the experience for desert newbies such as ourselves, it may be fun to try a guided tour which will point things out to us that we may otherwise miss. Luckily there are a vast number of guided tours available including (but not limited to Music in the Garden, native Cultures and Plants of the Southwest and Photographic Safari).
This will be a nice and relaxing part of our trip, some can even say it will be as easy as a walk in the park.
