Stone & Rock & Metal ...

Everything fits the desert landscape at the Desert Botanical Garden.  Everything.  In addition to plants, wildflowers, little critters, and cacti, your eyes will be drawn to sculptures and other structures that just fit.  Here are a few examples.

A penny fountain of metal with the water falling gently to beautiful desert rocks.  And, yes ... I added a penny.

This may be a sun clock - I'm not sure.  But the shadow certainly fits the time I was there.  

An extraordinary stone sculpture surrounded by desert trees and cacti - beautiful!

And now, a closeup.  Isn't it amazing how this piece - of stone - can depict such tenderness.

This metal "shade" drew my eyes upward - the lines and curves are certainly a contrast, but they compliment each other, don't you think?

Here's another study in contrast ... rebar and metal poles surrounded by the softness of beautiful desert flowers.

You could easily spend a day at the Desert Botanical Garden and not see it all - if you take a stroll rather than a run.
