Critters and flowers at the botanical gardens

From my trip to the Florida Botanical Gardens in Largo in mid-June.

I just realized they have a rainbow eucalyptus tree here. I have never noticed it before. Maybe it just recently started showing it’s colors. As the bark peels off, different shades come through.They are not native here but grow well in rain forests.

  1. I always like a tour of botanical gardens and I’m so glad you shared your finds! The critters and the flowers are great to see in my winter here in New Zealand and especially the rainbow eucalyptus tree:)

    I enjoyed your post at ‘My Corner of the World’ this week!
