We have Muny nights on Tuesdays this summer, and those are late, late nights. So we’re opting to sleep a little longer on some of these Wednesday mornings – bypassing the garden on those days. It’s sweltering outside, so I’m not particularly upset about this change in schedule. Sweltering is fine in a swimsuit in the ocean; not as fun in work clothes at the start of the day.
Here are some shots of the exquisite flowers in the gardens where we stayed on Sanibel Island. I think of tropical flowers as being so tough and hearty, standing up to the heat and the thunderstorms and the winds. But they are delicate as well in their toughness.
