    One of my fondest memories of Miami was my visit to Fairchild gardens. I also recommend it to anyone visiting the city. Check out the windows to the tropics and the butterfly garden sections in particular.

    • Love, love, love the Windows on The Tropics exhibit, which incredibly has to be glassed off from the rest of the gardens because Miami, unlike what many people think, is not tropical but sub-tropical and it can freeze in the area. It never freezes in the tropics. Some of the plants in that collection, like the lipstick palm (Cyrtostachys renda), are at risk of dying if temperature dip below 50F. And it often dips below 50F in Miami during winter.

      The Butterfly section is also one of my favorites.

      Thanks for stopping by and for your commentary!

      Cheers to Fairchild!
