Butterflies and Plants

We spent an enjoyable morning at the Desert Botanical Garden’s annual Fall Plant Sale. If my hubby hadn’t been there to control me, I would have purchased a lot more than the three Texas Ebony trees, the Creosote, and the two flowering plants we bought. If you want to stock up on desert plants, there’s no better place to go. The sale runs like a well-oiled machine and there are plenty of knowledgeable and helpful staff members there to help you out. Today was member’s only day, but the sale is open to the public Saturday (tomorrow) 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sunday 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

There is no charge to enter the plant sale, but if you do venture inside the garden this weekend through November 6, you can see the Monarch Butterfly Exhibit. We didn’t get a chance to check it out today, but we hope to go back before they are gone. The butterfly exhibit is free to members and $2.00 with a paid admission for non-members.
