The Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, previously known as Villa Vizcaya, is the former villa and estate of businessman James Deering, of the Deering McCormick-International Harvester fortune.

When I published my original post about our visit to these wonderful gardens in Delray Beach which are dedicated to the hard work of the Japanese farmers in the area, I only included 16 photographs and 1 video clip. I'm not sure why -- perhaps because I focused on editing the clip and thought 16 … Continue reading More photos from the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens

Now that winter is almost here, I thought I'd show you a few photographs from the autumn we've had this year. A few of them are from our courtyard, most are from our garden. Enjoy!
As promised, here are more photos of the spring blossoms in our garden.
Here's an early spring assortment of flowers and other creatures from our garden. I'll have more in the coming weeks, as our fruit trees begin to bloom.
It's become somewhat of a yearly tradition for me to share photos of our garden with you. Here then is this year's selection of spring photos. I hope the flowers bring as much joy to you as they do to me. I feel blessed every time I take a walk through the garden. I particularly … Continue reading Springtime in our garden
