I had planned a trip this time down here to Sarasota and the Marie SeIby Botanical Gardens. Mike surprised me greatly by suggesting we make the trip together. I was very happy to have his company for this outing.
We started in the conservatory, a room filled with orchids
The camera lens was very quickly fogged up, as were my glasses. Beautiful, nevertheless!
The gardens are relatively small in scope. They said an average visit took two hours. This represents a third of the bonsai exhibition.

Epiphyte gardens over our heads
Two hours and Mike was done. I could have stayed much longer and will visit again sometime.
