Tohono Chul was a beautiful desert garden in Tucson. It is really worth going to see. I was there recently with a few friends and this was the first time I had seen or even heard about it. But we all have a mutual interest in cacti and native plants and visiting this preserve was an excellent idea. This is a botanical garden but not like most we see with pretty greenery and lots of flowers. We visited in the fall, so most flowers were not the spring type we expect to see. I took so many photos of art works mixed with the native plants, saguaros and yes, there was greenery everywhere. If you have an interest in native plants of the southwest, this is the perfect place to visit. There is a lovely restaurant with delicious food, two nice gift shops and best of all, plants for sale at very reasonable prices. We spent 4 hours there and I'm ready to go back again so I can take my family. Spring sounds good! Many other plants will be blooming at that time of year. I plan to buy quite a few plants at their sale to bring the garden home to my house. Fortunately, I too live in a diverse desert area.
