Bok Tower Gardens in early September

Shots from my early September trip to Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales Florida. There’s always interesting things to see there.

The front door to the Carillon bell tower.

From the bell tower area, you can see down into the valley.  The bell tower sits on one of the highest elevated areas in Florida. An orange grove sits right outside the gardens.

It didn’t feel like fall or Halloween until I went to Bok Tower Gardens in central Florida. They had some fun decorations around the gardens. The scarecrows were made by local school kids.

I was disappointed that the only bird at the feeder was a red-winged blackbird.

It was a beautiful morning. The moon was still out while I walked the trails.

I recently spent several hours walking around the gardens at Bok Tower. It’s about an hour and a half from where I live in Tampa but worth the drive. The gardens have a huge variety of things including flowers, trees, birds, butterflies and other tiny critters to practice photography while getting in a good walk.
