A Spring Visit to Spring Hill Botanical Garden

My last visit was in the summer and most of the blooms were different.  
This is what is blooming in April in Florida! 






While there I had to stop and pick up a geocache!


An interesting Mother Child sculpture




 This was quite the strange flower! 


A bit further back so you can see how it grows.


It was a nice visit but I missed many areas due to time constraints.

We know that strange flower as a shrimp plant. Hawaii has all of those plants you posted! The first one is a shell ginger.

such a lovely collection of emerging flowers. Love the delicacy of the first one. And a most appealing sculpture.

The semi-tropical climate allows for lovely foliage, lovely colors we never see in New England - so pretty!

Lovely trip to the gardens. Enjoyed all the photos. We too call it a shrimp plant and we also get it in a red variety.

A visit to a botanical garden is such a treat - such a lot to enjoy and such a lot to learn from it. Yesterday I visited a rhodo garden and was amazed at the varieties. It's certainly worth an afternoon!

Hi Jeanne Marie, We were raised in Florida and then retired to the mountains of western NC. The best of both worlds is what we think. Lovely flowers grow in the warm weather. Thanks for sharing your special vacation.
xo, Jeanne
