The garden is small but lovely. If you are in the area I'd take a look. The high te is nice but not outstanding. Make a reservation.

There is no admission price but a suggested $10.00 donation. The gardens are lush and beautiful. It is only one acre of land, perfectly landscaped. The pathways are easy to follow and there were a number of places to sit. There is also a Tea...More
