Washington Oaks Gardens State Park: Part 3

If we turn north along the Intracoastal from our previous shots we find a lovely scene with palms on the shore.  A tropical island in the Caribbean or Africa?  No, still Florida (but hey, we are sub-tropical):


You then climb a small hill (in Florida 10 feet elevation changes are legally allowed to be called hills...) and are met with a trellis:

Which is the portal to a rose garden:

Tomorrow will be Sky Watch Friday, but on Saturday I'll be sure to have some nice shots of the roses and other flowers (and butterflies) that grow within the garden above.

I am looking forward to seeing your roses from the garden above. Thanks for the comment about the indians in your region. My daughter is writing a book about the artist( her uncle by marriage), who supervised the making of the Milbi Wall. He is my age and knows more than the young Aboriginals. He is a Christian and a forgiving person, in spite of all humiliatiation.

Yes, yes, yes - but is that you playing the horn?

Great shots. We've gone once - I love this place. Watch out for snakes though.
