A short hop over to Plant City for a fun afternoon out of the house. All the handcrafted items by artist Diego Smude are displayed in situ on this two acre site, so you can find inspiration as to how to add some charm to your garden or patio. The nature is not all rooted in the ground though, as you may cross paths with a wandering peacock, visit the pig, or chat with the (caged) chickens and parrots. (Or in my case get a giant grasshopper tangled in your hair, evidently as payback for an indelicate photo I had taken earlier. See below.) Don’t be intimidated by price! There is something for absolutely everyone and you’ll be surprised at just how affordable most things are. The larger custom iron work pieces are a bit pricey but much of the wall art and ceramics are in the $15-$40 range, you can pick up a succulent in an artsy pot for $10 and they even have a large section of random mix and match left over wrought iron decorative pieces arranged in bins for as low as >$1-$10. I say absolutely everyone because when I stopped by they even had some old used pots for planting they were giving away for free.

This garden is absolutely beautiful! It's not too far from the Berry Barn on State Rd 60. You can't miss it. There are large signs about their wrought iron gates and statues that will lead you in. Yes, 2 acres of iron artwork and sculpted statues. It's a butterfly garden with beautiful birds. They even have a talking pig that comes up to you as soon as you approach his home. A very vocal pig! I literally was mesmerized by all of this. We were greeted by a talking parrot. I believe her name is Annie (or so I've read). She says "Hi" to you as you walk up to her cage. Such a sweetie! A nice woman who I believe was the owner told us to ring the huge bell out front if we needed her for anything. Apparently they are used to people coming to visit just to get inspired. The entire garden is full of strategically placed sculptures, iron work, fountains, and many outdoor accessories (benches, tables, mail boxes, and so on). It's a place of business but also a botanical garden. As you walk along the paths towards the back of the garden you will also see a very large caged area sitting near a pond. There are some larger peacocks, a rooster, and another type of bird contained inside of it. You'll also see a few peacocks roaming through the garden. It was actually quite funny because I had initially seen them from afar at the other end of the garden. I didn't see them anymore as we got near to that part of the garden. I started to ask my mother where they all went, and that's when I noticed that the peacock was right in front of us (about 4 feet away). My mother didn't see it immediately until I told her where it was. It was as still as a statue. It just happened to turn around and look at us. Then, I saw his buddy in the garden behind him looking for insects in the bushes. There was also a white peacock that looked like a little princess. What a cool experience! I can't wait to go back. I'd like to get a few things for my garden one day soon. It was such a peaceful place. A place that anyone would enjoy. They are not open on Monday and Tuesday so plan accordingly. I suggest that you go this time of year (December or January) when it's cool. I'm sure that it's even more beautiful in the spring and summer. But there is water nearby, and with water there are mosquitoes. We thankfully didn't see or feel any mosquitoes today.

Unfortunately we went on a very cold day in January so the peacocks were not out and there wasn't much in bloom, but it's still a very interresting, unique stroll through a lovely garden with lots to look at. Maybe we'll try again in the spring!

Overall 10/10. Spent 1hr-1.5hrs. Beautiful place. Went with an 18m/o and we all enjoyed walking around, looking at the art, plants, and animals. Saw free range peacocks, and caged animals including a pig, chickens,and parrots. Left with two items that I loved and just had to buy!
