The Florida Botanical Gardens in Largo, Florida was a wonderful refuge for me from winter.
And better yet, it is free.
The Largo area (on the west coast of Florida near St. Petersburg) had suffered a frost several days before, and the unseasonable weather had taken a toll on some of the plants they have that are frost sensitive. But there were still many blooms to see, and many plants with beautiful colored leaves.
Crotons, where I live in the Binghamton area of New York State are houseplants. Not so here.
Day seven of the Ultimate Blog Challenge #blogboost. "G" day on #AtoZChallenge - my theme, "Florida Outside the Theme Parks".
Tomorrow, Sunday, is a "free day" where I can catch up with the progression of spring where I live in upstate New York. Monday, I'm back with a "H" post I highly recommend - one which may bring you to a high place in Florida Join me!
