This unusual beauty was in the Brazilian section of the Naples Botanical Garden. Fortunately, the docent pointed it out to me as it was not on my radar! Labeled as a chestnut tree, it apparently blooms annually, but only briefly, so I was lucky to capture it.

Luck - you can't deny it, but you sure can't depend on it! You might be able to anticipate it on occasion, but it can be fickle. Nevertheless, you always want it on your side... Naples, FL
