Bridget extends her successful arboretum tour!
“Okay, sweetheart. You can start. Just remind them where the arboretum is and go from there.”
“Don’t worry, RVSue. I know what to do.”
RVSue and I visit Boyce Thompson Arboretum.
That’s Arr-bore-EE-tum for you late-comers. It’s near the town of Superior in Arizona and it has many, many plants.
We’ll start with the Cactus Garden.
In the first photo you see a cactus that is trying to grow fur. Believe me, cactuses are strange! (That’s me in my car.)
“Oh, really. Thanks, RVSue. I’ll keep that in mind.” Jeepers, talk about control issues . . . I happen to know that you can say cactuses in English. But I’m not going to argue with RVSue.
All right. Where were we? Oh, yeah . . . . the barrels.
“Bridge? Show them the close-up of the cactus with the fruit on top. This would be a good place for that.”
Here she goes again . . . butting into my tour!
Okay. In this next photo we have the cactus with the fruit.
RVSue says “it looks good enough to eat.” (RVSue’s mind often runs to food. Mine does, too, but mostly I keep it to myself.)
I keep waiting. I wait a long time!
I wiggle around in my car. Finally RVSue notices. She pushes my car to another spot in the butterfly garden, like that’s going to amuse me or something.
We take a break and then RVSue pushes me around and around until she realizes she doesn’t know where we are and about the time when I’m beginning to wonder if we’re going to full-time it at Boyce Thompson Arboretum, she asks for directions out of the place.
Oh! Thank you for the nice things you wrote about my tour. I hope you liked this one, too!
