Lots of color at the Florida Botanical Gardens in late July.
It had rained earlier that morning so most everything was wet.
This looks like a young tiny bunny.
I love Bok Tower Gardens in the spring. It’s the only place I’ve seen orange sunflowers.
The pitcher plants are really cool as well.
Lots of things were blooming when I was there in late April. I just wish it was closer. It’s now almost 2 hours away, though worth the trip. I usually make several stops on the way home at other parks but it’s too hot to do that in the summer.
Butterflies were everywhere but I mostly saw monarchs.
The birds were not plentiful but I did see some redstarts and great crested flycatchers.
And now I know why they call it a “cottontail” bunny.
Pretty things at the Florida Botanical Gardens in Largo at the end of May.
Squirrels were busy eating fruit all over the gardens.
The squirrel in the two bottom pictures were eating the above. A lychee tree. My husband grew up eating his Mom’s homemade lychee ice cream but you don’t really see it here in central Florida.
A very young titmouse was following Mom around. She was trying to get him to feed himself but he just kept yelling for her to feed him.
A green heron creeping along a branch in the parking lot.
The sun coming through a papaya tree.
