The sights are dizzying. I should know more about the Banksia protea? up top, but generally only see them in florist shops.

I practically missed the big ole pavilion. Was too busy looking down. These photos are by Bill Wagenblatt. Interesting to see what a race car photographer sees in a garden. And it probably helps to have a big lens.

Agave americana?




Hummingbird & Aloe

Didn’t see this man-made feature either.

Water feature, man-made.


Water Lily NoID


Hummingbird Heaven

I wish I lived closer to places like this so I could visit more often. Maybe then I wouldn’t be so disappointed in my own garden–the kind that comes from the denial zone.
