|Bobbie, Christy, Sweetness, Ralph and Wayne at the Desert Botanical Garden|
In Phoenix we met Bobbie and Ralph Friedly at the Desert Botanical Garden for lunch and a tour. As we ate Roadrunners and Gambel's Quail visited the table. I kept looking for Wile E. Coyote! The gardens are filled with perfect cacti unblemished by man or beast. Sweetness was wondering why there were Teddy Bear cacti but no Swine Spines. Phoenix was warmer than Tucson despite its northern location. It sits in Sun Valley, which intensifies the heat.
