I was able to drive up the hill to Superstition Gardens for a visit on their last open garden day this year. The challenge will be posting all the photos I took! Hilarious!

The day started out cloudy but soon cleared. It was a beautiful spring day!

I'll start with some of the larger garden pictures.

Approaching the garden from the parking area:

I saw 'Cold Fusion' in a neighbor's garden Saturday and was quite taken with it.. 'Coffee Jitters' looks interesting too...
