Fairchild Garden - Florida

>> Sunday, September 26, 2010

I am off island for a while and my postings will be limted. However, I did recently go to the Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden in Florida. At he information desk I told them I was from Hawaii. They thought I might not see much that is different from where I live. Well, to me that does not matter. I enjoy garden design as much as the plants themselves and this garden is a great example of a well designed garden and landscape. The mature trees along with the colorful plantings and well maintained grounds makes this garden a must see! And although this was not a great "blooming" time of the year and it was an overcast day, I am glad we did not miss this attraction!

Beautiful gardens - it does sort of look like Hilo!

Looks like you are enjoying your time away! Are those birdhouses in the third photo?

Since I moved beyond being a master in the garden, but a trend setter, I noticed plants unwelcome in my garden for being abused elsewhere in my habitat. Nothing wrong with that..

Trend setting beyond
mastering becomes a lonely world...believe me..but one hundred species compensate the usual sappy comments...Good luck in your projects..
