It’s been a while since I’ve taken you on a garden tour. A couple of weeks ago we had a lovely stroll through the McKee Botanical Gardens in Vero Beach, Florida and I thought those of you stuck with gray skies and snow might enjoy some flowers to lift your spirits.
It’s a beautiful park with Monet-esque scenery. There are lots of canals with oodles of water lilies, including the lotus flowers and Victoria Regis Waterlilies. Here are just a few:
They often have art exhibits scattered throughout the grounds. Right now, they’re exhibiting Nature Connects, Art with Lego Bricks by sculpture artist Sean Kenney. Here are a couple of my favs:
This one took 60,549 Lego bricks to build. Fun Fact: A Monarch butterfly can travel some 265 miles per day!
This one took 31,565 Lego pieces to build and measures 64″x32″x77″.
Of course, there are tons of other plants and flowers at the garden. One of my favorites is the Rainbow Eucalyptus tree…
Here are some more beautiful flowers at the garden:
I always find it amazing when you look closely at flowers and often find little flowers withing the flower! I hope you enjoyed your tour!!
Traveler’s tip: If you like visiting botanical gardens and know you will visit more than two a year, you might want to check out becoming a member of the American Horticultural Society as your membership not only benefits them, but they have a reciprocal program that gets you into many gardens across the US free of charge. A win-win… just sayin’. : )
Sending you all plenty of sunshine and warm wishes for a lovely day!

Such pretty flowers and those lego builds are impressive
Oh how beautiful! The water lilies are magnificent – especially the frilly white one – they look a little like a fried eggs! Brilliant lego sculptures. x
