home and garden in the desert

My favorite spot  
 to visit this past weekend was  
one of the most photographed
places in Palm Springs this season. 
It's the ranch-style house of
located on Racquet Club Road in Palm Springs.

Artist Doug Aitken covered every
surface of this mid-century style home in mirror.
It reflects the surrounding desert landscape
in the most beautiful ways,
and each time of day is different.
Each time you visit will be a new experience.

It’s the ultimate mirage in the desert!

April is also the perfect month to visit
the “Living Desert”.

It’s another fabulous family-friendly
excursion in Palm Desert,
filled with gorgeous native and exotic animals

The grounds are an interesting tapestry of

A truly beautiful place!

Among some of my favorite animals there were the
mountain lions, fennec foxes and giraffes.

And where else in the US can you get to ride a camel?

Giraffe feeding is
also a popular activity at the Living Desert.
It’s so fun to get up close and personal
with these huge and amazing creatures!

But I think our favorite activity there was
visiting the butterfly exhibit.

I’ve never seen such beautiful butterflies anywhere else.

Here’s a fun little guy I captured on my smart phone…
