Vacation 2015 - Lotusland : Butterfly Garden

 I don't think this is the Butterfly Garden - which has plants that attract butterflies - but is adjacent to the garden.
 The most intriguing part of this area is the lemon arbor.

 In this area, just out of site, is a Dawn Redwood tree.  Long thought to be extinct,  a reported sighting in China led a man to make a trip to find out.  He did indeed find it, and the tree at Lotusland is a clipping from that tree in China.  The tree is making a resurgence worldwide with just the clippings from that one tree.

 A huge Staghorn Fern.
The photos in this post are from area 11 and just south of there, almost at area 12.
