Last week, instead of visiting the garden a couple of times, we lived right in the middle of one. These are some of the flowers that surrounded us at Sanibel Moorings on Sanibel Island. Everything was so lush and in bloom. There’s a tremendous amount of sun, but the shade is abundant, and the vivid flowers look so amazing against the dark greens. The garden is full of movement – lizards everywhere, although they are very difficult to catch on camera.
The flowers like to flaunt it down here – they seem a little more brash and unreserved. Perhaps that’s the influence of the beach. You drop your insecurities and your timidity at the towel, and let go a little. Every path around the grounds offered up new surprises, a new shot of color. It’s nice to hang out in a tropical garden every once in awhile.
