In the Garden

We promised you a photo review of our walk in Fairchild Tropical Garden this week.  To really enjoy a garden, it is a good idea to walk slowly and take in all the amazing beauty God has given to us here on earth...  so grab a cup of coffee or a tall lemonade and enjoy the walk.

on this very large tree we spied some dark shapes way up on a branch;
with our zoom lens we saw these growths

American Coots
the wishing tree had hundreds of wishes tied to strings hanging from its branches
wishes for a reunited family, a heart for a baby brother, peace,
and wishes written in various languages were found hanging on the tree
