The Return of Travel Thursday-Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden!

It is just sooo cold out!  I thought you would like to be where it is nice and toasty!  A friend and I went to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden.  It was a beautiful garden.  I had last seen it nine years ago and it has matured nicely and has a wonderful gift shop and cafe.
 
We got there late in the day so we were whisked around on the tram.  The garden is 83 acres so the tram was a great way to see most of the garden quickly.  Another drive-by experience!  What was really funny was that the iguanas were mating so there were orange (The males turn orange to get noticed!) iguanas running around everywhere!

So if you are in the Miami Beach/Coral Gables area, stop by Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, you will not be disappointed.

My garden is LOVING the gentle rain. I can see my lemon verbena's green gratitude!

Thanks Cindy for stopping by. Fairchild is a beautiful place.

Glad Buddy is OK, Kary. Even though we don't have animals I know how much like family they become. Take care of yourself too! You need to be rested in case he gets sick again!
