Gorgeous flowers and fountains- I really enjoyed spending the morning there. There were some beautiful hydrangeas. Glad I stopped by!

Took our engagement pictures here in late April. The flowers were in bloom and just gorgeous! Totally recommended, and it's free!

Tucked away and private, this garden showcases formal and informal arrangements and statuary. This is such a perfect place to take a picnic lunch. It is not heavily crowded, but appears to also be a favorite spot for engagement/wedding/celebration photos. It is a serene place to collect your thoughts and dip your feet in the fountain. Shhhhh - don't tell everyone! ;)

Little garden within the city with lots of plants, may be a little too crowded. Enjoyed the citrus trees in the large containers. They are moved into the greenhouse in the winter. There was an interesting robin's nest with two babies. If you were patient you can watch the parents feed the babies. The Kauffman graves were off to the side and not made obvious.

This was so beautiful. The flowers were showing the wear of the recent rains but still a nice display of color. We did not realize this is this is where the Kauffman's are buried. Nice place of rest! We spent about 45 minutes wandering around this small garden. Enjoyed the markers telling you the names of most of the growth.
