Going green — with a splash of red and orange — in Oviedo, Florida

Citrus Trees at Lukas Nursery

The kids have a science project due for school. We needed the supplies to get started and there’s one place in our town we like best for plants: Lukas Nursery & Butterfly Garden.

Erysse stops to smell the flowers.

We like to visit the garden shop, even when we don’t have science projects. You never know what you’ll find!
