I'm excited to be returning to the botanical gardens in Naples, Florida this coming weekend. I was just there a few weeks ago with my family. We enjoyed it so much that we decided to buy a year membership.
On certain days of the week the Naples Botanical Gardens offer yoga classes and other days where people can bring their dogs. They often have concerts and they currently have some beautiful sculptures throughout the six unique gardens at this attraction. The gardens are all beautifully maintained. Admission is only $14.95 for an adult. If you decide to become a member they will apply your admission fee toward your membership fee.
I highly recommend this attraction if you are in the southern Florida or Naples area. It is a very peaceful and relaxing environment with a lot of beautiful things to see. The six different Gardens offer different types of flowers and trees for all tastes. I really enjoy taking photos while there.
Here is their web site for more information: Naples Botanical Gardens
The above and below photo show a very large yoga class in progress on a Sunday morning.

I loved this sculpture of a horse that looks like it's galloping through the garden:
There were many beautiful archways like this one:
Here is a building in the oriental garden:
There were so many gorgeous orchids throughout the gardens. I enjoyed seeing them as I have always loved them, but never had any luck keeping one in my home.
Pictured above is one of the lily pad and lotus ponds in the oriental garden that I loved.
There were many benches and hammocks for people to relax and enjoy the beauty:
I am really working on my close up photos which will hopefully improve after this next trip :)
Thank you so much for stopping by. Please leave any comments or questions you might have. I wish you all a wonderful weekend!
