Laurel Rhodes

Carlton Reserve, Venice FL
Sarasota County, FL

With Dusty Rhodes (photos). Full sun, 78F, light breeze. 2 hours. We expected to see a few species given the time of year, but the lure of plentiful Richardia grandiflora by the Carlton entrance was irresistible to a good variety of species.
