Often the heat of summer creates the feeling of seeing mirages in the heat vibration. These wonderful yellow wild flowers on their delicate stems were magical to experience. About 30 inches above the ground, a speckled carpet of single yellow blooms float. The next layer included white capped Pitcher plants. Lower down, greenery and other amazing specimens. By focusing the camera on the front layer of plant growth, turned everything else into background. The magic lives on, for me at least.
Migrating Birds stopped off for a refreshing early summer swim in the flowing water streams in the garden. What joy it was to observe and capture. Check out the Shop section for more images on this joyful visit.
What excitement to discover this little plant of Spiranthes vernalis in the gardens. This indigenous to Florida, Orchid seem to have appeared out of nowhere. I was super happy to welcome them to my suburban world. Visit the SHOP section for more images.
