A Glimpse of the Garden -
Scottsdale, AZ

When we were in Scottsdale, Rose had this idea to go to Scottsdale Botanical Garden (it wasn't high on my list I have to admit - somewhere far below sleeping and watching TV). But off we went - like Canadians in the desert.
Well ... I gotta tell ya, it was quite a treat.
