Southern Florida is a haven for lizards, including this green iguana we came across while visiting Miami's Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden.
This fella seemed to enjoy being in the spotlight, offering his best side for the camera. Fortunately I was working with a telephoto lens. The wildlife is as colorful as the flora and fauna when it comes to this amazing tropical garden. If you'd like to see more, check out my entire visit via my blog at Exploring Fairchild Botanic Gardens in Coral Gables, FL. Such a beautiful place to soak in the flora and fauna of South Florida. #green #patterns Don't overlook the Wings of the Tropics Exhibit at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. This beautiful creature (doctored a bit in Photoshop) and hundreds others warmly greeted me during my visit.
See more of my favorite photos from my visit via my blog at You might think I'd prefaced our encounter with the phrase, It's sunshine with a twist every time I get the chance to spend the day at this astounding tropical garden. There is something for everyone; edible gardens (ooh, count me in), several conservatories, a rain forest, a butterfly garden (always a favorite) numbering 3000 guests from as far away as Central and South America, an arboretum with over 700 species of tropical flowering trees, a Keys Coastal Habitat for attracting migratory birds and other wildlife, as well as a Sculpture Garden. Did I forget anything?
Check out my blog for more sunshine via the following link: A beautiful manicured garden with many different types of palm trees, a butterfly garden, and a delicious cafe. A great place to spend a couple of hours and relax. Nobody is gonna' rain on my parade!
This colorful collection of umbrellas is on display inside the new Adam R. Rose and Peter R. McQuillan Arts Center at Fairchild's in celebration of the Gardens and Glass Chihuly Exhibit.
Now through May 31, 2015, guests to Fairchild's can see over thirty Chihuly pieces artfully nestled throughout 83 acres of gardens.
For a spectacular treat, visit on Thursday or Sunday evening (I'm hoping to return) and experience the magic of Chihuly illuminated under the stars.
Great Paddle day. Great food!! A novel assortment of visitors this past weekend at Miami's famed Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens included these witches and bats created by artist and Fairchild volunteer Bev Murphy. Her fun and funky creations, made completely from organic materials, certainly helped set the stage for upcoming Halloween festivities. Over 1,000 choices of Beer! Must try when in Miami!
Really big and awesome park! Belzebuth beer. Long live 13% Coral Gables, FL - Fairchild Tropical Gardens
This amazing botanical garden is dedicated to tropical plants. Roam the grounds through structured gardens and natural areas. Make sure to check out the Chihuly pieces still on display.
