a garden update. miami beach botanical garden

November 11 2014. 001 (23)

well, i bitched and complained (i really did) about everything being just green for so long but, then our miami late fall/winter arrived and everything started blooming again

you will not hear me complain for a while (until summer returns again)

while my mom was still here, on a day off of school for Lily, we spent a morning at the miami beach botanical garden

a place that i used to go to weekly when we lived on the beach but a place that i had not visited for a long time

if you would like to see more pictures from this morning, go here

they are not the hugging kind, but they make up for it with its beauty (actually, they store water in those spikes)
