Marie Selby Botanical Gardens and Mariella Smith’s birthday

It was decided after a lazy rollout of coffee, muffins, cards, gifts, sung voice mail messages, phone calls and internet that we would go to Marie Selby for my wife’s birthday.

The entrance was a beautiful display of epiphytes or orchids or bromeliads.


Mariella and I wandered the grounds in mostly shade next to Sarasota Bay.

There was an installation of Dali imagery in conjunction with the garden.

A beautiful lunch at Michel’s Cafe. Great. Then some other great images.

Happy birthday Mariella.
