I told myself that I wouldn’t post any more photos of cacti. Then we visited the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix and I couldn’t help myself.

These are epiphytes. They survive by absorbing nutrients from the air.

We dropped by the Arizona Biltmore for a drink before dinner. Unfortunately, it’s been closed for a year due to COVID-19 – as we were informed by a startled staff member who found us in the lobby heading for the bar.

The next morning, we took a short walk known for its rocky views. We encountered a three foot rattlesnake, who shook his/her rattle at us to make sure there was no doubt.
