|The centerpiece of the Garden is this 205 foot Carillon Tower, which is a |
National Historic Landmark. There are daily concerts given here.
|The Spanish moss filled Live Oak Grove|
|Informal woodland gardens are interspersed with ornamentals and expanses of lawn|
|Staghorn fern is popular in this part of Florida|
|One of many -- Camellia japonica|
|The Reflection Pool is just before you reach the Carillon|
|Fern covered Palm trunks are so enchanting -- amazing.|
|Outside the Blue Palmetto Cafe, Spring and Summer annuals|
are humming right along already in March
|Maybe the coolest thing at the Garden -- A Tillandsia screen!|
Doesn't it look as if they're floating in mid-air?
|This is the Sunset Overlook. At 298 feet, it is one of the highest points|
in peninsular Florida. Those are orange groves down below.
|As you leave the Garden, you will drive through the orange groves. |
It's hard to resist the tempation to pick a few. Aren't they enticing?
Sunny Florida, Part I
