That looks like a wonderful place to spend a few hours.
Kathy - It was! Such a beautiful place...
My husband's cousin lives in Naples and it's beautiful there. I haven't been to the Botanical Garen but I'd like to visit sometime.
Vicki - It's well worth a visit if you get the chance :)
I love botanical gardens. I could stroll for hours. My kids get so bored though. The hub does too.
Ti - Same story here... my SIL and I loved it, but my husband was mostly humoring us!
Stunning, you would think you visited another country and you weren't in south Florida. My husband just upgraded from a iPhone 7 to a Xs Max. He loves it. makes my 7 phone look like a cracker!
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...
Gorgeous!! I love botanical gardens.
Angela - So do I!
They are still beautiful!
Thank you, Patty. I just love places like this!
Gorgeous - I love this sort of thing and, the hub humors me when I suggest places like this.
Diane - I love seeing how gardens like this vary with area. There were so many unfamiliar, but beautiful, flowers, plants, and trees here.
How pretty! Your pictures are always wonderful!
Audrey -Thank you... I'd love to take a photography class!
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!
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!
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.;)
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 :(
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.
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.
I think your phone is taking lovely pictures! Or, I should say, you're taking lovely pictures with your phone. :)
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 :(
