This is the rainy season in Florida, every day we can expect thunder and lightning. Florida is the lightning capital of the country I am told, whatever it is, I respect it! Then the torrential rains will come, this does not mean cooler climes, nooo it means dampness, mud and humidity left behind in it's wake. In our case it also left behind a roof leak--sorry but just can't think about that at the moment, too depressing to contemplate.
In our attempt to forget roof leaks and all other miseries that life sometimes entails, after the rain, Mr. Dude and I decided to take a walk through the Florida Botanical Gardens in Largo,Florida. It was just before Sun Set. What a beautiful oasis has been created by the many Master Gardners who work daily to keep this a beautiful place for everyone to enjoy. This is a free admission to 30 acres of cultivated gardens, and 90 acres of natural environments. There are 150 types of birds, reptiles and mammals and endangered species, including the bald eagle, that live in this space

Remember now this is Florida so just had to include this to remind you. This sign sits on the bank of the Aquatic Garden!
