Cactus in Bloom

We've been in our subdivision for about four years now. We put our landscaping in about the same time. I'm so excited that some of my plants have bloomed for the first time this year.

Art in the Park at the Arboretum

If you have not been to the Boyce Thompson Arboretum you are really missing out on one of our local wonders. This place is amazing. Not only do they provide a beautiful area for walking and studying plants they also provide some nice programs for promoting local artists.

This Saturday they held an Arts in the Park art show.
the show was sponsored by the Soroptimists International of Gold Canyon. They did an excellent job with this Art fair.

There were some awesome jewelry artists showing their wares. I found some of the nicest quality beaded jewelry that I have seen in a long while.

Some of the most original art were these reclaimed art crosses from Desert Resurrections. These crosses are made from recycled wood and items found in the desert. The ultimate in recycling.

I think a whole show of recycled art would be fantastic.

If you haven't been to the Arboretum yet I urge you to go there. It's a wonderful way to spend a day or morning. They have a picnic area if you want to have a little lunch with your family.
Please see their website for details.

Have a great week and let me know if have a favorite Queen Creek or Pinal County event coming up in the area.
