One of the gardens at the Naples Botanical Gardens is a Florida Garden. In the Florida Garden is a pavilion that has a new hair do.
The roof was recently re-thatched and one of the friendly volunteers was telling me how it smelled like a barn. I know that smell, so I had to check it out. Besides, I was headed for the chairs under the pavilion because I was getting tired and needed a rest.
It did smell like a barn and it was fun looking at how neat the construction is on the underside.
It didn’t take me long, however, to realize that this man-made structure is an integral part of the garden around it; I soon forgot that I was in something made by a person. This is a functional structure from which to enjoy the nature-made beauty just beyond the thatch fringe.
