Over the weekend I visited the beautiful Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota, Fla., with the primary purpose of smelling that rare, stinky flower in bloom. Having traveled an hour’s drive (one way), I decided to make the most of the visit and spent an hour walking the grounds and soaking up the bountiful blooms.

Although it was a little hot, I took shade under the trees and inside the Conservatory. Enjoy these snapshots.
