Florida Cactus


The University of South Florida Botanical garden has some lovely cactus in their collection. From the <a href="http://cactusjungle.com/archives/blog/exit.php?url_id=1831&amp;entry_id=1655" title="http://www2.tbo.com/content/2008/jan/27/pa-a-perfect-place-to-get-away/" onmouseover="window.status=’http://www2.tbo.com/content/2008/jan/27/pa-a-perfect-place-to-get-away/’;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;">Tampa Bay Tribune</a>.<br /><br /><div style="margin-left: 40px;"><span style="font-style: italic;">I had the pleasure to encounter three… curators as they busied themselves among a prickly display of cacti and succulents….<br />
<br />
Edelman and her fellow cacti curators Bob Gallion and Emily Laurenti volunteer their time and expertise twice weekly. Their duties range from keeping the exhibit manicured and healthy to preparing cuttings for public sale. But most important to them is the opportunity to share their knowledge with greenhorn and green thumb alike….<br />
<br />
But most of all, the USF Botanical Gardens is a great place to take a load off. Shade abounds, as do secluded nooks replete with quaint wooden benches and fragrant solitude. I paused for a sit among several dozen species of bromeliads, some in bloom while others waited out the winter for warmer days.</span><br /></div><br />Nice.<br /><br />
