    Default Marie Selby Gardens

    We visited the gardens on Tuesday, it was as beautiful as the last time we were there. Things were a little quiet but I got a few shots of the wild things growing.

    Very nice, Cin! I haven't gotten over there yet. My folks love the Ringling mansion as a tourist destination with guests.

    I was just on the phone with my mom and told her I had to come down in March so you and I and Kim could go orchid shopping! She was impressed that Kim was going to fly over from Vietnam to go shopping with us. I told her it was an orchid thing...

    Sounds good to me,Julie. I am already putting together ideas for the menu. You really should go to the gardens they are very pretty and the views of the city are outstanding.

    Here are a few more pics from Marie Selby when we visited in November. No way to convey the entire beauty of the gardens and home. These pictures don't do it justice - you just have to go!

    Ok, Tami, I'm guessing the second shot - the Catt in you first group of photos is a Catt. warscewiczii or some primary hybrid. The third shot in that group sure looks like a Catt. maxima.

    Great pics - thanks for the photo tour!

    PS - Tell Darwin we love his legs!
