A few weekends ago, we braved the heat (at 7am) to visit the Desert Botanical Gardens here in Phoenix. Our mission? To scope out plants for our front yard makeover...which may actually never happen due to minor life distractions like, oh I don't know, having a baby and working like crazy before said baby enters our lives?
I just wanted to share one little snap I took that morning. These pincushion cacti were scattered around the gardens, parked under big protective plants for shade. Smart thinking, guys. Aren't they just adorable with their little flower halos?! (I'm just practicing for the impending adorableness of baby-dom.)
