At the beginning of January, 2009, we interrputed our stay in Davis, CA, for a week's trip to Phoenix Arizona. We went for an Elderhostel event mostly about Frank Lloyd Wright and his architecture and about music, with a side trip to the Phoenix Botanical Gardens where the cacti were embellished with a colourful exhibition of glass sculptures by Chihuly. Phoenix is in the Sonoran Desert which is known for its tall branched saguaro cacti. In fact, cacti are the dominant theme of these images.

There are simple technical notes here.
