the weather in phoenix was lovely! and since my flight didn't leave til 8 pm i had time to take advantage of it with a visit to the desert botanical garden- which is near enough to the airport to make it a convenient stop. i brought the sony 5n with the standard 18-55 lens on it (making me really glad i sprung for both- it fits in my purse with this one, easy to pack).
saw my first ever roadrunner (beepbeep!)
and countless beautiful desert blooms-
