Upon my visit to the St. Paul Conservatory, I came upon a beautiful garden of autumn plants and floweres and nearby there was a sign titled "Enchanted Gardens' with these words scribed the most delicate of creatures, the butterfly. Beyond the garden, there was much more and many more beautiful flowers as you can see.
Like flying flowers-
Like delicate structures of stained glass
Beauty takes wings in the butterfly
With their their stunning colors
and graceful presence.
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
I was born and raised in the cold country of Minnesota. After spending thirty seven years in education, retirement in Arizona was my answer. Today, my interests and passions include traveling, playing tennis and being with my grandchildren.
