We’re taking a day break from the Chihuly exhibit (back tomorrow, though) to travel south to Tucson and the Tohono Chul botanical gardens. Membership at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix comes with reciprocal admission to over 300 gardens throughout the U.S. so we decided to take advantage of that on one of the last days off my husband has for a bit. Little did we know what a gem this garden was! But more about the garden itself will have to wait until we’ve finished ooh-ing and aah-ing over Chihuly. For today, though, I have first a lovely set of doors leading into a inner courtyard and from there into the bistro. The left-hand one even has a bonus door.

I felt these doors had a very European feel to them but then the Southwest often takes a nod to Spain and similar European areas.

I also enjoyed this gate and the small specialized garden on the other side.

Tomorrow it’s back to glass but I hope you enjoyed the little side trip and that it whet your appetite for learning more about this wonderful garden.
