A Bee and two Opuntia blossoms

One of my favorite places to visit is the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, Arizona. I was born and raised in Arizona and the D.B.G cares for a fantastic conglomeration of desert plants. There’s something special about the gathering of all these unique plants, all together, all different, it humbles me every time.
