Today we go back to the beginning. These fabulous grass trees (Xanthorrhoea sp.) were just off the parking lot. Gerhard and I both stopped to photograph them while a Lotusland staff person looked on and commented that nobody ever stops to appreciate them, they just walk on by…
This is the walk off the side of the gift-shop, the actual entrance into the garden.
Agave attenuata line the first section of the main drive.
And then you tuck off to the right and find yourself in the tropical/jungle garden. Epiphyllum hang from the trees.
And Monstera deliciosa climb skyward.
Just about the time
