The gardens might not be large by some standards, but there's certainly plenty to see, and such fascinating plants! Those huge fan shaped leaves in the 2nd photo are gorgeous, and I love that wierd and wonderful red and yellow star-shaped bloom. That spray of white orchids (do I have that right?) is beautiful too, and the pink in the last photo.
It's nice to see you come out from behind the camera too, Ms. Alice :) It looks like a wonderful place to visit. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos.

Fabulous plants from the tropics...and photos of Alice! Woohoo!

You must have had a wonderful time in the botanic gardens with your camera, because those photos are wonderful. I love the heliconias (parrot beaks) and bromeliads, they're just so bright and cheerful.

Thank you for that lovely trip.

Hello,
My name is Thomas Marcucci. I live in the northeastern U.S. Your climate provides much more exotic looking plants, their beautiful. I am a publisher for a blog called EverWinter. It's about evergreen care and gardening for winter interest. We are at opposite ends of this hobby when it comes to gardening, but, I believe there is beauty around us no matter what the climate is. the URL is: http://evergreenwinter.blogspot.com.
