Papas World – Sarasota – Botanical Gardens

Marie Selby Botanical Gardens

We were invited to spend the day in Sarasota Florida.

And – we were scheduled to see the Botanical Gardens

I did not know what to expect

and was quite surprised at what unfolded

as we spent over two hours walking

a paradise of green lush gardens!

A tunnel of mangroves!
Every corner we rounded
brought something
unexpected!
A eye ball
with a waterfall
represented
a exhibit by
SALVADORE DALI
along with EGGS
and BUTTERFLIES!
Huge trees
with roots expanded outward
to better balance the tree
as there is nothing but sand
Anther SALVADORE DALI
tribute
LIPS!
A quiet water fall
just the sound
calming
and lush with vegetation
A piano
in the pond
A piano in the tree!

As we walked – I was amazed at just how everything just blended

into nature – how calming it was – and so shaded!

SALVADORE DALI
HATCHING FROM A EGG!
A building full
of originals
some not seen in 15 years!

Sherry and her sister Debbie

You would never know you were in the middle of Sarasota!

And you would find yourself gazing out over the water!

Sarasota Bay
Benches at the end of a path
sit and lookout over the bay

I found myself in a calm state of mind

Hug a tree
with the one you admire
Seek shelter
Spread your wings as a butterfly!

It was a thing I had never considered to do

and now thankful I did!

Peace – love and happiness!
