Here are some photos from my weekend road trip to the annual Boktoberfest plant sale at Bok Tower Gardens in Lake
Wales, FL. The gardens, which cover 250 acres and were designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, are a National Historic Landmark. They were begun in 1921 when Edward Bok, editor of Ladies Home Journal, and his wife commissioned Olmstead to transform what then was an arid sand hill into "a spot of beauty second to none in the country".
