    I see by Jeff's cage, you guys were probably at Crandon Park!

    Randy,

    Not Crandon Park, but we were at the Pinecrest Garden near Fairchilds. The gardens were really nice and in good shape.

    First post, pic at far right: looks like a nice Joe Friday, not common. I've only seen one - at Sunken Gardens (by the flamingo pond). I think it is a Bravo sport.

    Jeff - I'd love a road trip to Valkaria, FL then perhaps that other garden on Merritt Island. Those plants should be looking much better now ;)

    Another interesting option would be to visit Mr. David King's garden. The more photos he posts, the more I want to see it. I especially appreciate that he has been collecting a long time, acquiring old plants and keeping notes. Could possibly have a few cultivars that rarely exist anywhere ... ;)
