Vegas Day!

I needed to get out and practice with my camera before my big trip, so I met Tanya over at the cactus gardens by the Ethel M's chocolate factory, it is all free. You walk the gardens then go through the factory (it is really short) then they give you a piece of chocolate, dark or milk, I love a little dark chocolate, yum, then you walk out through the store, I bought the hubby some chocolate on the way out, some milk chocolate coins. It makes him happy.

The gardens were just beautiful and it was the perfect weather, a nice cool but sunny spring morning!
I am not much on naming everything, I like to just look and take pictures, if you go to Tanya's blog, Beadandneedle she has more pictures and info too, but if you just feel like looking at some pretty pictures, here you go, enjoy:

I named him  "The long arm of the law"

part of the factory

A little lizard, they were everywhere!

Cacti are amazing aren't they? Weird shapes and strange flowers.
