Wanting to experience even more desert plant life we visited the Desert Botanical Garden today and it was incredible. Everywhere you looked there were great displays. It was a great day to walk around and take in the great scenery and learn more about various cactus and plants.

A dense field of various cactus.

I loved the red needles on these cactus.

Saguaro cactus with Cholla cactus in the foreground.

At first we thought these giants were Saguaro but they are actually Cardon cactus that grow even bigger. They are less resilient to cold so they do not grow native in Arizona.

Very rare Crested Saguaro cactus.

These Chihuly glass sculptures were incredible.
