Day tripping...finding a little bit of magic 
here and there...

Entering wonderland aka Bok Towers in Lake Wales, Florida.
Very cool screen of 'air plants'
which I've plans to recreate a smaller version of....
This totally takes me to wonderland for some reason.
’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
      Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
      And the mome raths outgrabe.

“Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
      The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
      The frumious Bandersnatch!”

He took his vorpal sword in hand;
      Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree
      And stood awhile in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
      The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
      And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
      The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
      He went galumphing back.

“And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
      Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!”
      He chortled in his joy.

’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
      Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
      And the mome raths outgrabe. 
Tricks...this was not even as tall as moi!  It's top looked similar to a bunch of celery.  Crazy plants in this place.

And of course, in this magical place,
there is a grotto....full of frogs!
Not a big fan of frogs/toads...
but these guys were so comical.
You can't see half of them!


  1. Kim, thanks for taking us along. Looks like an interesting place!

  2. Hi Sarah! It is a very interesting place. I could blog about it many times...and I may in the future. Read more about it here http://boktowergardens.org/tower-gardens/our-history/

  3. That looks like such a magical place. I need to be there ~

    1. Hi Barbara! Just hopped over to your blog, beautiful quilts and I love Patches & Stitches [your kitties & the shop]. And I remember you! I'll be in Huntsville, AL in October to teach a workshop. Looking forward to seeing everyone and meeting new people.
      Bok Tower is very magical, if you're ever in central Florida, you definitely should go.


Thank you for popping in.
Have a great day,
