This one below is my favorite. The camera was really working with me.
Some unique leaves with flowers that contrast the plants greatly.
They like to stand out from the crowd.
Massive hibiscus are always a delight to see. Here is my hand to demonstrate size. These were all that gigantic!
Perhaps the prettiest leaf in nature. I do not know what this is, but they get huge and gorgeous.These huge pom poms are scattered throughout the butterfly garden adding tons of whimsy.
These tall flower stalks are also playful.
Lastly I am showing the mimosa tree. We see these growing wild along the roads, covered in pink. However we had no idea how neat they would be up close until seeing a few of these at that gardens!
Mimosa comes from its root species but I think it would have been better referred to as a feather tree (just my thoughts).
I hope you enjoyed early summer at the botanical gardens.
Thank you for stopping by! ~Val
