Re: ther here

Well, Mardi, I don't know how much time you will have to muck about in Tampa, but here are some places I would recommend:

1. University of South Florida Botanic Garden. In Tampa, near Busch Gardens.
2. Harry P. Leu Gardens, Orlando.
3. Bok Tower [it's south of Orlando; not sure of the city, but worth the trip]
4. Marie Selby Botanical Garden, Sarasota. [Maybe the best of the bunch.] If you decide to visit this one, I can mail you a couple of Guest Passes.

Also, all except Bok Tower are on the AHS's "Reciprocal Gardens" list, so if you're a member of another member botanical garden, bring you membership card.

Here's the web site for the botanical garden association. I think all of the one's I've listed have links at the association site. If so, you can learn more about them and get directions to them

Of course, you're welcome at the nursery. But we're about 80 miles south of Tampa and, frankly, probably not worth the trip if you want to see specimens. But I'll be happy to meet you there and give you the grand tour.

Hey, Jim...looks like the Hawkeyes are invading Florida again this
year...maybe I can stow away on the team bus...oh well, I can dream,
can't I?

I'm glad to hear your weather is warming up, Jim! My husband and I will be
among the Hawkeye fans coming to Tampa. Any suggestions on cool gardens in
that area I need to see? And where are you and the landscaping company you
work with located? (I'd like to see if my visual image of orchids growing
on trees bears any semblance to reality!)
