I can hardly believe it is mid October. We are leaving frosty weather behind for a few days. We are in Arizona, me for a workshop and Hubby for golf and visiting friends. Our free day together we visited the Phoenix Cactus Gardens. The highlight was the butterfly garden. Over 3,000 butterflies with perfect lighting and even my phone took great photos. I have no idea of the type of butterflies. Being sleep deprived from getting up at 1AM to make our flight I walked around the butterfly house mesmerized by the beauty and dry heat of the desert. Here are a few of the lovelies. I had never been in a butterfly garden with so many nectar flowers and having such a feeling of being in a magical garden space. It was well worth the visit. The cactus garden was nice also, but simply out done by the fairy dancers.
