Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden

We took an excellent senior adventure trip up to Miami with our adventure buddies Martin and Betsy.  Here’s the thing.  I took 465 pictures and I don’t know the names of anything I saw. So I’m just going to post some of my favorite pictures here for you to enjoy.

This Great White Egret was across a lawn from us, but then decided to come over to our side. It was not the least bit concerned with four humans and walked very close by us while Betsy and I took pictures.

Fairchild has exotic tropical plants from all around the world. There are so many strange things to see and marvel over. When we were there at Christmas, most of my attention was on grandsons Owen and Cam.  This time, I enjoyed the plants more.

      Oh! We have been foolish enough to pick and taste little bananas. I suspect that the ones we buy in the store have been bred for eating. The ones we have picked tasted were awful.

      There were so many more that I didn’t post. It is magical to stand there among them and to have one land on you.
