We have thoroughly enjoyed our visits to the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota and were surprised at how much larger these gardens seemed. After some research I have learned that the MSBG cover 15 acres, while the NBG cover 170! No wonder we spent nearly 3 hours there and still missed parts of it.
The first origami was located just inside the entrance...
A view of the Burle Marx Plaza. I think this was one of my favorite sections of the gardens.
The Children's Garden...
There were several of these leaves/fronds in the walkway.
The "Raptor" and "Armijo's Mouse" are two separate origami pieces placed near one another, the raptor overlooking the mouse. It is called "Who Saw Who?"
NO climbing or touching the art!
The butterfly garden...
The Hidden Garden...
Apparently one can use just about anything as a flower pot.
We walked along the Uplands Trail and ended up at Lake Tupke.
