Bok Tower Garden Blooms

Bok Tower Gardens provides carillon music and flowers year round. Many people may think of Florida summers as too hot to spend time outdoors, and too hot for flowering plants, but that is not the case. This past weekend the temperatures only achieved the high eighties, he writes with a grin. Below are pictures of just four of the many plants offered by the gardens in late summer and early fall. If you get hot, the museum, gift shop and cafe offer opportunities to take a break from the heat. In the cafe, I generally go for an ice cream cone or chicken salad on a croissant.
