I was in Florida to celebrate roses.
There wasn't much time for sight seeing, but I couldn't miss
the Spanish moss-- it was in every tree!
An unplanned detour showcased miles of gorgeous Ocala horse farms.
Back to roses-- look it's November and potted blooming roses are for sale (?!)
I thought I'd see more gardens like this-- I'm just glad I saw this one in a tiny, sleepy town called Floral City.
Can you stand it? I love this.
Louis Philippe must reign as Florida's favorite Old Rose-- he was everywhere.
Bud Stout's bonsai collection was a special treat.
Another China rose. Does anyone know the name?
Before dinner one night, a shot taken from the restaurant's property.
Colonial splendor on a corner in Winter Park.
The roses at Leu Gardens from a distance------
and close up--- I know--- they were all pink HTs, but so perfect!
An irrisistable vine.
One of many new friends and---
don't be scared--- he's plastic.
