Finally getting around to combing through the 2000+ pics from our trip to bring you some highlights. They are low res so they will load quickly, but most retain their beauty.
Here was the first stop along the way: the Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens.
Enjoy your tour!
Purslane (Portulaca oleracea) – some varieties are edible!
Nymphea ‘White Delight’ Tropical Waterlily
Blue Glory Thunbergia battiscombei
Pareidolia – the human ability to see shapes or make pictures out of randomness
What do YOU see in the following orchid pictures? Gonzo? a puppy? long noses? dancing ladies? or just gorgeous and interesting flowers? : )
This dragonfly is enjoying breakfast on an Indian Shot (Cana edulis).
Gloriosa Lily (Gloriosa superba ‘Rothschildiana’)
Desert Willow (Chilopsis linearis)
Did you know that many types of day lilies are edible?! Find some that are and try adding them to a salad for a fun and lovely surprise.

I hope you enjoyed your tour in the comfort of your air-conditioned home… it was 101 when we went through the gardens. We only went to a few areas that were of most interest to us, yet we were totally drenched by the time we got back to the car!
I’ll have more posts in the near future… please check back soon… or subscribe so you won’t miss any posts!
