This couple has put so much love into these gardens and it shines through. Sculptures, glass walkway and plants to go. Lovely hour on the Bay . There is an admission charge and lovely pictures on their website.

I enjoyed the many photo opportunities, the gardens and flowers, the peaceful atmosphere, the outhouse, and the garden sculptures. The leisurely walk through the gardens, listening to the buzzing of insects, made me feel at one with nature.
