This beautiful vintage Florida postcard shows a boating trip through waters surrounded by towering Cypress Trees and vivid flowers in a surrealistic scene.
Cypress Trees, the age old monarchs of the Florida forests grow far out in the waters of the lake at the Cypress Gardens and form a magnificent background for the quiet electric boat trip. Fantastic, gnarled knees grow from the roots of the Cypress Trees creating a strange contrast to the drooping, willow-like branches. Many of the state’s souvenirs are made from these gnarled roots.
The Cypress Trees are one of the wonders to see in the Everglades National Park of Florida that are such a surprise to those living in more Northern climates.
