Lucky me because I have a friend who volunteers at Selby Gardens, and she gave me her guest pass today. What a treat! It was far more enjoyable than my last free visit to Selby when the rest of Sarasota was also invited for free. I’ll shell out the $17 admission before dragging my family to that mob scene a second time. But lucky me again since John and Cooper are always such good sports.
The white flowers in the first photo are commonly known as Musical Notes. Their less fitting scientific name is Rotheca incisa. I’ve never seen them before, one reason to never tire of visiting Selby Gardens or any other garden for that matter. You never know what will be blooming.
