Leu Gardens - PHOTO HEAVY (28)

Don't Blame Me !!
It's not my fault, Cathy let me loose in a garden with a camera and I got a little carried away.

We spent a couple hours in the afternoon walking around the Leu Gardens in Orlando, the temperature only got to 60 so it was a little chilly in the shade and by the lake but it was a beautiful garden and we were surprised by how my blooms were out.
There are over a dozen different gardens on the grounds with over 200 varieties of Camellias, including a very rare Yellow Camellia which we never found.  With the chilly wind and it getting late in the day we only covered half of the property, put off the tour of the house and I still took about 150 Pictures.

Just a sampling of the pictures we took there.

 I had Cathy stick her hand in to show the size of these leafs and this was a medium size one.

Never heard of this one before.  It's a GREEN ROSE,, really, you can see the little bud to the left of the bloom.  You can call it a rose but it still looks like a weed to me.
