day tripping: bok tower gardens

Our tickets had been purchased since January, and we kept waiting for a nice day to take the trip out to Lake Wales to visit Bok Tower Gardens. Every week, I kept my eye on the weather, and every week, our hopefully sunny Sundays faded into grey, cloudy, cold, and/or rainy skies. Last Sunday, the forecast predicted a sunny morning, replaced by thunderstorms in the afternoon. We were tired of waiting to take our trip, particularly after Thursday's dreary news, so we just went for it. I'm glad the morning was kind. 

Michael walks a path near azaleas in bloom
Bok Tower in morning light
Taking in a view of the orange groves
At the foot of Bok Tower
Happy baby, happy mama
Bromeliads (& a vast spiderweb this photo could not capture)
A manicured grove
Orange upon the stair
An ordinary grove
Orange blossom heaven
Garden sentinel
