It’s amazing to see them installed next to cacti and other plants. I would be so stressed out if I had to put that together. One, I would just break everything by touching it somehow and two, I would fall into a Saguaro cactus — no doubt about it.
I will say I was kind of saddened (don’t know what else I expected) by the plants at the garden. Perhaps it’s because I’m from Arizona and drive by these kinds of plants every day on the highway, but I thought there would at least be some flowers or something that wasn’t light green/tan in color. My mother is trying to convince me it’s just the time of year, but the title of the place was straight forward to me: it wasn’t a botanical garden in the desert it was indeed a desert botanical garden. Nothing like the beautiful Brooklyn Botanical Garden in NYC with it’s extensive collection of roses.
All of that aside it was such a beautiful day here in Arizona and I can’t believe I’m so lucky to only have to wear a light, long sleeve tee and pants in the middle of the winter. I guess that’s one huge thing to be grateful for here. I never really share images on here that reference Arizona life, but I think I will appreciate them when I’m freezing to death in rainy Paris the next few months. So thank you for taking me out today mom — I will remember it for months to come!
I’m wearing Prada sunglasses, J.Crew top and necklace, Madwell jeans, BP shoes, Kate Spade bag and assorted bracelets from J.Crew and Kate Spade.
