selby gardens

I went to Selby Gardens in Sarasota yesterday after taking Nia on Siesta Key. I was a little tired, but going to the gardens was such a lift and so stimulating to me creatively, I am really glad I went. I am slowly figuring out I use photography and especially taking photographs of the natural world to inspire me . . .

    1. I love that first group of trees too Sheila, even though most people love the tall, tall Banyan Trees with the tiny people underneath! I was taking photos in the area and a woman saw me doing so and said something about how I should come over and take a photo of the tree grouping you like. It is right behind the koi pond and so stunning, yet so calming.
      Thanks to all for your comments, I am really glad you enjoyed the photos.
