Sunday Photographs

Took a trip over to Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales this past week, so have a a few photos from there. It was pretty, as always, with early signs of spring.

First, here's a view of the tower itself.

We found a butterfly (monarch) on a bed of dianthus.

Here's a look at one of the garden paths.

One of my favorite images, however, was of a blue jay. This was taken through a plate glass window.

This last image was taken at my grandmother's old place, not the gardens, but what an amazingly beautiful passionflower.

I omitted 2 pictures of Pinewood Estates. To see those visit, my 2014 album at Photobucket.
