My End to Christmas was a Trip to Bok Tower Gardens

It's always nice to visit the places in your own backyard.  By this, I mean, I live in Florida and tend to venture far on my trips, forgetting that there are many things to see in the state beside the top tourist attractions.

Last Saturday, I went to Bok Tower Gardens.  I have heard of this place my entire life, but never went. I took a tour of the house on the estate, as well as stroll down the paths, walk to the tower, and simply look at the beauty all around.

The tour of the house was my way of wrapping up Christmas.  The house was decorated for Christmas and it was just beautiful.  It was my last look at the beauty of the Christmas season.

Here are some photos.  This was on the side of one of the paths leading into the trails.

 If all the orange groves' trees were shaped like this, they would be so beautiful.  Sadly, I've watched the orange groves in Florida make way for condominiums.  As you walk through them, it sure smells wonderful.

Here are some pictures of inside of the house.  

 Lovely seashell wreath on the bathroom door.
