  Selby Botanical Garden
by eugini2001

The collection of orchids & bromeliads at Marie Selby BG in downtown Sarasota has garnered hornors & recognition the world over. No wonder I was more than impressed.I have never seen an orange orchids,moreover all of them are huge! I almost bought one at their gift shop,but remembered my last perchase of this flower that had died in couple days,& changed my mind just in time.It was very hard to resist not to buy,they much cheaper & bigger than ones that are in Brooklyn shops.
The view of the bay & bridge is breathtaken one! Lush floral,bamboo & palm gardens & lizards, small snakes are all around you!
