Sunken Gardens-St. Petersburg, Fl

Wednesday, September 28, 2016

This is a little gem of an attraction in the heart of St. Petersburg, FL. It was made about 100 years ago and they host many weddings. I hope you enjoy some of the beautiful sights we saw.

DH & I at the entrance to the gardens.

One of the beautiful flowers we saw.

Chilean flamingos

This is a waterfall tucked away in one corner.

Several different areas had koi-some they said were up to 100 yrs old and they were huge.

At one point we got to walk across the bridge over a koi pond.

There were several parrots and other birds in different areas of the park.

This sign tells about the growing stone.

This is the 4 of us sitting on the growing stone-Vickie & I are hoping it helps our green thumbs!

Staghorn fern growing on a palm

This is a rainbow palm-something we had never seen before.

If any of you ever get in this area, I highly recommend taking a couple of hours to see these Gardens. It isn't expensive and if you enjoy anything about plants you will enjoy the time here.
