I'm so glad you like my desert banner!

Big thanks for the acorn tips from @Fleur569 and @cliftoncat. Thank you all for the thumbs up!
When I'm in Arizona my favorite place is the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix. This photo was taken there when it was near sunset. I was afraid the lighting wouldn't be good, but it worked out.
