Further into the park, a lone white morning-glory blossom stood out brightly in the surrounding greenery.

Morning Sun on Morning Glory on Cabbage Palm

January 28, 2018

Walking through the parking lot, I saw the morning glories climbing the sabal (cabbage) palm as I approached the main path in South Lido Park. I took these little jewels, struck by slanted morning light, as a good omen for finding more photographs that morning, but the pickings overall turned out to be slim. While looking for a good external link to information about the sabal palm, I learned that the old frond bases—where this morning glory is tethered—are called bootjacks (scroll down that page). To learn another cool thing about sabal palms, click here and scroll down past the second photograph.

Bye-Bye, Begonia 1

You may remember the photograph of the begonia plant that captured my heart this summer. Shortly before I left Ohio to spend a few months in Florida, this is how it looked—still beautiful to me but perhaps a bit alien.

My Blue Heaven

I still don’t do flowers, but I just could not ignore this blue, which happened to be on a flower.

If you get to Schoepfle Garden when the sun is still coming in at a slant, you can see it light up the Wyoming Canna Lilies.
