desert Botanical Garden - before sunset

Last night I accompanied my Aunt and Uncle to the Butte Botanical Gardens. We were meeting some of there firends there to see the Bruce Munro: Sanoran Light art exhibt displayed through out the gardens. My aunt had sown me photos of the event in a magazine, but actually being there was amazing.

Arriving around 5:45, just before sunset we were able to walk among the gardens before the sunset. These are the photos I took before sunset and the lights came on.

We started the evening with wine and I got a Prickly Pear Margarita, super tasty, and walked around. The Gardens architecture and layout were beautiful. The colors and variety of catus were fun to capture while there was till light.

I'll be posting more photos of the actual lighted art exhibts soon. To learn more about the artist you can go to:
