Here are a couple of pictures from my Florida vacation, once we got there after the blizzard and fun at the airport! Visited Fairchild BG, Mounts BG, Morikami museum, McKee BG and Heathcote BG. Lots of bonsai and many other horticultural delights some of which follow. We were in Miami, West Palm, and Ft. Pierce.

This first set is from Mounts BG in West Palm. Love the dry steam bed with all the bromeliad plantings and the grove of ponytail palms. I have a 4 foot ponytail palm myself which is dwarfed by these. The turtles were cute!

Thanks, here's a few more.

Only reptiles we saw were these little lizards. the bridge was done by an artist. I loved the faces on the large urn.
Color came from the bromeliad and the huge bismarckia palm.

Me too. came home to freezing cold and a new snowstorm on the way. Sitting under the ponytail palm in my garden window just doesn't cut it somehow. Sigh.
