About the Book
Book one, Garden Reflections 2009 is a collection of images of a "March afternoon spent at the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens" in Sarasota, Florida.
Selby is a not-for-profit institution fostering understanding and appreciation of tropical plants, especially epiphytes (plants that
grow on other plants), through programs of research, conservation, education and display. Selby Gardens is perhaps best known for its living collection of more than 6,000 orchids.
The 9.5-acre bayfront open-air and under-glass museum houses more than 20,000 colorful plants, for which Selby Gardens is internationally recognized.
