Bali to Brazil – A Garden in Naples Florida

The Naples Botanical Garden is a gorgeously designed garden with many themes, such as the fairy-tale-like Mosaic Garden and Children’s Garden, the vibrant Brazilian Garden, and the exotic Asian Garden.

So many beautiful details from moss covered stone carvings to wooden bridges over steams and lily ponds. Even a fire extinguisher has it’s own Bali style carved  resting spot!

apieceofrainbow17- (22)The other part of my favorite is the Brazilian Garden, in the style of the great Brazilian landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx (one of the first people to call for the conservation of Brazil’s rainforests), with such modern and bold shapes and colors composed of sweeping paths, plants and tiled walls. apieceofrainbow17- (24)apieceofrainbow17- (23)apieceofrainbow17- (8)Even the humble parking lot is designed with such care. Here the rain water run-off is capture in series of rain gardens, purified and returned to the aquifer. apieceofrainbow17- (2)Hope you enjoyed this lovely place as much as I did! See you again soon! apieceofrainbow17- (3)apieceofrainbow17- (1)apieceofrainbow17- (19)If you love gardens, here are a couple of other posts you may enjoy-

    This post and its gorgeous pictures are so in tune with the current tropical trend in all fields – it is a design/fashion model in a nutshell! And as always, I have enjoyed strolling in the park with you… Have a great and sunny summer!
