Flamingo Botanical Gardens and Bonsai show

 A few weeks ago Patty and I got to visit the Flamingo Botanical Gardens. They were hosting a Bonsai show. I was really surprised by all the plant life. It really is a sanctuary. I drive by it nearly every day and I didn't even know what a treasure it truly is.

These are snow drops I believe and they smelled wonderful!

I love this strawberry container. I want to make one. It can be hung on a fence or wall or just propped up. 

There were several beautiful Peacocks. They are so loud and they sound like a dying cat.Some of them were way up high in the trees.

 I'm planning on touching up these photos in photoshop and printing them. I think they would look nice in my master bath.


I've lived in South Florida for almost two years and these are the first Flamingos I've seen. Can you tell I was excited? I took about 100 pictures of them. I had such a wonderful time. It was nice to get away for the afternoon. I also met a Macaw named Precious. He liked me a lot. I got him to talk to me. I want to go back and visit again.

The flamingos were spectacular! I was so glad we got to see them. And all the stunning orchids and bonsai trees. Precious the cranky Macaw certainly liked chatting with you. I'm sure he would like to see you again!
