believe me when i tell you that on our spontaneous sunday, air conditioning was never part of the equation. vizcaya had been on our to-do list for awhile, so why not check out this miami treasure in the middle of august? oops. bottles of water and sunscreen in tow, we toured the amazing home (no photos allowed!) first, but i sort of skipped through quickly, itching to get into the gardens. ("come on! it looks just like those rooms in the met!") and the gardens- there really aren't words. i'll let the photos do the talking. it looks like we had the whole place to ourselves, no? there were actually pockets of garden-goers everywhere; the grounds are so expansive we were able to steal away and feel like we were the only two there. i cannot get over how many incredible things there are to do and see, just down the street.
