hi there, This was an interesting garden to find, we found a couple and did ask if they thought where we were wanting to park was a good spot, it doesn't seem to really matter. A lot of folks walking, enjoy the day, being with family, walking their dogs. Just a nice free spot to enjoy and take in the gorgeous beauty. So so pretty. We noticed a gorgeous hall where they were taking down, what I do imagine many have been a rehearsal dinner, wedding or other such party that happened the night before??! Very neat looking place to have a party or 2? Not that I have that kind of money, but I often wonder what it would be like to have all these pieces of property where you could just donate them for other folks to enjoy ...it seems we have come in contact with lots of gardens just like that. They appreciate donations and benefactors who do give them the money to keep it up over the years... but it is so lucky for persons like me who get to enjoy them and just be in awe! Thank You, for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care, Be Well and Be Blessed. Beth ( ;
