Fairchild Gardens, Miami, Florida, USA, 2008.  One of the beauties of the garden is the numerous small pools that it contains.  This small garden pool was full of lily pads and reeds. We side several small fish and bullfrog and cane toad tadpoles.
 
alligator Fairchild
This is an alligator that I saw in Fairchild Gardens.  I thought it was a very neat feature of watching an alligator glide across the water toward me, 2008.

Chulully
chulully
Fairchild Gardens, Miami, Florida, USA, 2008.  The Chulully art  is blown glass in large cylindrical or other shapes that are then placed in the water or around the garden. Here are two pictures of the better pieces of art in my opinion.  I personally feel that the art is more a type of environmental pollution than something aesthetically pleasing.  I felt that the art detracted from the natural biological beauty of the garden.  However, many people seem to really love the Chulully exhibit because Fairchild Gardens extended the time that the Chulully exhibit would stay at the Garden three times, I think. The top photo was taken by Patricia Vendramini.
