About two months ago my love and I went on a family trip to Florida. We took a stroll through the Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park, part of the commonly known Everglades. Before our trip Nathaniel borrowed “Orchids and Other Air Plants of the Everglades National Park” from the library so I could whet my appetite. I absolutely love epiphytes and bromelaids! Upon witnessing these plants in the wild, I nearly fell to the floor (of the boardwalk) in sheer delight! Here are few photos of the delightful plants that range from coin-size to arm-load size. Also I included a few photos of some of the fauna we came upon.
