We spent a lovely morning strolling through the Phoenix's Desert Botanical Garden. The garden opens at 7AM everyday, and as early as 6AM for members. The summertime heat is no joke and we were done touring the garden by 10AM. It was peaceful, full of incredible desert flora and a great place for inspiration (if you are into succulents as much as we are). If you're ever in this part of the Southwest, we highly recommend it.
