We saw lots of different trees, plants and flowers. Unfortunately, I left my good camera at the condo so these are shots I took with my iPhone.
The gardens are on the shore of Sarasota Bay. Here's a popular lookout view near the gazebo where many weddings are performed.
Here is a bunch of non-orchids.
|Some type of Bromeliad in bloom|
|Blanket flower - gailliarda|
There was a very nice koi pond with fish up to 18" (45cm) long.
The silk cotton Bombax tree had these large, red blooms that were about 7" in diameter.
The rest of these are various types of orchids, most of which were growing in a big conservatory or the greenhouse/gift shop.
|Some type of 4-leaf clover|
