|St. Xavier de bac Mission|
|This lovely mission was established in 1692 and construction was completed in the late 1700's. It is undergoing renovations at this time and the results are wonderful. There is a beautiful little cactus garden behind an iron fence. We strolled the grounds, took some great pictures, had Indian fry bread and visited the lovely little gift shop. We were unable to enter the church as a memorial service was being held at the time.|
|I love Spirals!|
|Beyond this lovely fence is a wonderful cactus garden!|
|Bright Yellow fruit of the cactus|
|Such great texture|
|Purple & yellow!|
I am so inspired by the colors and textures of the desert. Tucson is a wonderful city to explore. Each time I return new discoveries delight my senses!
