A Busy Day in Florida

I love visiting gardens and attending flower shows whenever I can - for me, it is such a pleasurable escape from my busy work schedule.

Last week, I was thrilled to find enough time to attend the 23rd Annual Redland International Orchid Festival in Homestead, Florida with my friend, Ilene. Over the years, this three-day event has become one of the most anticipated festivals for orchid fanciers. More than 65-vendors from around the world participate in the exhibit to share their orchids and orchid growing supplies. While I was in South Florida, I also had the opportunity to visit some other sights including the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in Coral Gables, the Deering Estate, and the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens in Miami. Over the next couple of days, I'll share photos from all these wonderful places.

Here are photos from the Redland International Orchid Festival - the first stop on my short one-day excursion - enjoy.
