Within walking distance of my house are the Florida Botanical Gardens, small by most public garden standards, the FBG consists of 30 acres of cultivated gardens and 90 acres of natural areas.
I love visiting the gardens at any time of the year; they are a wonderful place to wander aimlessly, to go to for an impromptu picnic, to sit and reflect and to take visitors.
Today I thought I would share with you some of the plants that grow at FBG; many you may never have seen before unless you live in an area like Florida. These photos were all taken on Mother's Day this year. Enjoy!
How often do you see a sign like this at your local botanical gardens?
My favorite sighting at the gardens on this day was this one:
My wonderful son, Jim, who showed up unannounced on my doorstep to celebrate Mother's Day with me.
I hope you enjoyed seeing our gardens, now stop in at Susan's @ A Southern Daydreamer for links to other Outdoor Wednesday participants.
