A simple grouping of variegated leaves found in the Conservatory at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota, FL.




Marie Selby Gardens Mermaid

I have photographed the Mermaid in a small pool at Marie Selby Gardens in Sarasota numerous times but, on this particular day it was a little more of a challenge.  Over the past couple of years the plants surrounding the Mermaid have become overgrown and are in major need of a trim.  Normally you can get a nice photo with a waterfall flowing a small distance behind her without too much kneeling or squatting involved. Unfortunately for my body that wasn’t the case this trip.

Selby Public Library

The Selby Public Library was the first library in Sarasota County, Florida that was established in 1907.  Located on 1st Street in downtown Sarasota the building was designed by architect Eugene Aubry and constructed in 1998.  The large bottom heavy columns support and grace the outside of the building, providing large shaded porticos .
