My mom and I have been on a roll lately of going over to the beach whenever we get a chance. I've shared some of those photos here from time to time.
On the way we took some time recently to stop by the botanical gardens being developed at Palma Sola. They have a piece of property that is quite beautiful.
Located in Bradenton, FL, it is right next to Robinson Preserve, a 487-acre wetland habitat.
The flora was bright and intense as it transitions from summer to autumn. The sun shone brightly but the autumnal angle softens the harshness with each passing hour of the day.
It isn't a large garden but there is room for growth with acres left to be planted as they gather funds to do so.
Not a huge fan of crotons myself but even I couldn't help but be drawn to the vibrance and enormity of the mammy crotons.
