beauty and mystery (at Sunken Garden- St. Petersburg, FL )

I love all of the flowers andย I love the trees

AND somehow it is the walkways and paths that call to me

Beautiful, yet mysterious…

what is up ahead?

what is around that bend?

what beauty awaits?

She was such a sweety!  She was flirting with me and even though the sign said not to touch or feed...and warned that she bites... she likes pets and scratches :)
