So many bright colors at the Florida Botanical Gardens in early September.
Found these leaves on the ground. While I would like to think it’s fall already, they probably came off in the storms that we had recently had. It’s a tease considering fall won’t be here in central Florida for months. I loved the yellow colors though.
Pictures from a walk around the Florida Botanical Gardens in Largo during a morning summer rain shower. Most people say the rain never lasts long in Florida in the summer but sometimes they last most of the day. This morning in August it rained all day. At least it wasn’t hot.

I headed out to the Florida Botanical Gardens in Largo in early August around 8am. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky in Tampa. As I got closer to the gardens I could see the dark clouds up ahead. I was thinking it would be a quick rain shower and then it would nice and cool to walk around after the rain. I sat in my car for over 30 minutes in the down pour. It finally slowed down to a drizzle. I got out of the car with my big golf umbrella and walked around the gardens taking pictures in the drizzle. At least it wasn’t hot.
These were all taken at the Florida Botanical Gardens in late October. Some things were just starting to bloom and some things were starting to look tired. The purple coneflower were all at the end of their season but red berries were sprouting up everywhere and bananas were growing in the fruit garden. Of course there’s always something growing in central Florida.
I got out of my car at the Florida Botanical Gardens in Largo just as the rain was going from a heavy downpour to a light sprinkle. After waiting 30 minutes I was ready to get out. Everything was wet and drippy including me since all of the trees were still dripping on me. The birds were hiding so I started snapping pictures of all of the wet stuff around the gardens. I was trying to be creative catching the light through the raindrops but it’s harder than it looks. I probably could have used a tripod. Next time I’ll throw it in my car just in case.
