Papa’s World – before the pandemic – Sarasota Fla. Loved this city! Just too far away!

Papa and Sherry – hugging a tree in Sarasota , Florida – we had considered moving here – but it was just too far to drive for family and friends and for us to go back home without flying.

Then the Pandemic hit and it never came back into the discussion again.

But – I really liked it here and if we came to Florida – this would be my first choice!

I do not remember the name of the garden but it is city center – and a beautiful place to walk!
We were among huge old growth trees – a lot of shade and a sort of tree – boardwalk that wound its way

in and through the tree branches!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – Sarasota Florida in the garden – with a exhibit for Salvadore Dali!

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!

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!
