I hope you are having a great weekend.
The house I grew up in Florida was landscaped with palms, banana and orange trees. My parents also grew delicious pineapples and avocados. Now that Steve and I have moved back to Florida I want to bring that tropical feel to our own home. The previous owners had added five palm trees to the yard and we are slowly adding more tropical plants.
A recent trip to Casey Key gave us the perfect opportunity to visit the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota. I really loved the gardens and would highly recommend it to anyone that loves plants, especially tropicals.
Lets take a look at some of the highlights of our visit.
The gardens sit right on the bay with views of Sarasota.
The banyan trees are my favorite. I wonder how long it would take me to
grow one this big..LOL
Thanks for dropping by and I hope to see you at the Share Your Style Party.

Those tropical gardens are so pretty! I've been down to Sarasota before and it's a nice area.
wow! What lush vegetation. Palm trees and fruit trees are so foreign to me. Yum!
I love to go to botanical gardens Sherry, and I bet this tropical one is eye popping! The tree roots/trunks are fascinating!
so pretty Sherry, love that waterfall and pond!
I love banyan trees! We saw them in Oahu this past spring. Our kids had fun swinging from the hanging branch/roots Tarzan style. Each tree is uniquely wonderful and fun to look at. thanks for sharing yours.
So beautiful!! Oh how I'd love to grow mangoes in my backyard… sigh!
How gorgeous – it looks like a documentary I just watched on the Rain Forest ! As for your house will you be growing fruit trees as well? I'd give anything to be able to grow pineapples !!
Your weather is a bit different from mine so I enjoyed this very much! 🙂
Gorgeous Sherry!! I spent my childhood summers in Sarasota up until I graduated high school…we loved it!
What an amazing botanical garden. Having moved away from Florida, I surely miss all of the beautiful tropical plants. Thanks for the tour Sherry.
