Scenes from the Naples Botanical Garden










We recently spent a beautiful afternoon at the Naples Botanical Garden. My photos were taken with an iPhone 7... I'm due for an upgrade!

  3. I love botanical gardens. I could stroll for hours. My kids get so bored though. The hub does too.

    1. Tina - My husband got a new phone at the beginning of winter... can't believe how much shaper the photos are. Mine still works, so I can't justify am upgrade just yet...

  9. I enjoyed this tour. You are in the TROPICS, for sure. How nice! Are you sweltering yet, by any chance??
    We still have 8-12 inches of snow in the woods, but the fields are pretty much clear.
    Happy Easter!

    1. Judith - This is actually considered sub-tropical and, yes, we've already had some very warm & humid days. It's a little early, but we're expecting a cold front tonight or tomorrow.
      Our small lake in NY is sometimes frozen into April and there is one snow bank in a shady corner of the school parking lot that tends to linger into May. I imagine it will be starting to fell like summer by the time we get back. Happy Easter to you, too!

  10. We were there this January, and I thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Were the glass sculptures still there? My phone is an LG as I refuse to replace my cracked iPhone, and I'm really pleased with it. In case you update with another brand.;)

    1. Bellezza - This was our first visit to the Naples Botanical Garden. and I know we'll go back... it was just spectacular! Unfortunately we just missed the glass sculptures. There were still remnants of the dismantled exhibit behind the scenes. We were a few days too late :(

  11. Love these pictures. I used to travel on business to that area a few times a year and I miss the lushness and color of the area. It was always a treat to go in the winter, when CO is so brown and dry.

    1. JaneGS - I love it here this time of year... not quite so much in the summer when it's so hot, humid, and stormy! The Botanical Garden was a beautiful discovery.

  12. I think your phone is taking lovely pictures! Or, I should say, you're taking lovely pictures with your phone. :)

    1. Thanks, Les. My husband has a newer iPhone and I'm stunned by how much the camera quality has improved. Mine phone still works fine, so even though I'm due for an upgrade I can't justify the cost :(
