A beautiful orange patch of Aloe dorotheae.

     In June 2006 I headed up to Phoenix for the CACSS show and sale. Unfortunately the lighting was weird in the room where they held the show so I'm not pleased with those pictures. But I also took a lot of pictures of the grounds of DBG itself and bought about a dozen plants. I would have liked to spend more time there but it was a hot day and I arrived a bit late in the afternoon. I will have to return someday when it's cooler.




Pictures of the show plants

The show was neat to see, plenty of beautiful and exotic plants in all categories.

Seemingly well kept and clean. A lot bigger than Tucsons Botanical Gardens.
