Because the other things I wanted to do were not open until ten or noon, we went to the Leu Gardens in the morning. We drove there with me using three maps each with different information. Fortunately when we got close, there were signs pointing to the site, and when we got there (about 9:15), I was surprised to see people directing us to parking places. Um... I would have expected there not to be many people on a Saturday in Orlando this early in the morning.
It turned out that the gardens have over 150 kinds of camellias, and this is the day of the big camellia show. So THAT'S what all the people are doing there.
This was serendipitous because the show and grounds were free instead of costing $5 (or $4 for seniors or other protected species like AAA members). We couldn't see the show until it opened at 1 pm because the judges were in there judging the specimens, but there was plenty of other stuff to see.
America's third largest Camellia collection
The largest formal rose garden in Florida.
