I went to the Bayfront Gardens recently and it was a perfect day. The gardens were very serene and peaceful-we just relaxed by the Ca'd'Zan in wicker chairs and talked about how bloody hot it's getting. Oh sweet sweat.
The gardens were very pretty and they had groovy names for all of the plants. My favorite was 'Old Smoothie'. Because that's a pretty name for a pretty flower. There were also tiny white flowers called "Popcorn'.
We got there too late to go into the circus museum but I've been a few times before. It's definitely worth a visit if you're ever in Sarasota. Check out all of the details here.
Also, happy 4th of July!
