Beautiful photos.  Thank you.  I was there 30 years ago and always wanted to return.  I remember their orchid and epiphyte displays at that time being very impressive.

@bubba + @piping plovers There are more photos on our Facebook page.  If you're using a PC, you won't need an account to see them (I don't use Facebook).  On my phone it's sometimes difficult to bypass the sign-up/login nag:

Our photographer managed to get some better shots of some of the plants at both Selby and Rob Branch's garden than I did, so it's worth a look if you have the time.
