Sunken Gardens………

….is a treasure hidden almost smack dab in the middle of St.Petersburg,Florida.

After living in the Tampa area for 41 years,I realized I had never been there.It was time…..

Soooo,along with a friend,off we went.

Right there,on 4th Street,there it was.Pay the entry ($6 Senior citizen,I think) and you enter a totally different world…..No sounds of traffic.

This treasure exists,tho,4th Street is just a few yards away.

Across a busy parking lot is this…IMG_0802

A whole other world….

So,if you ever visit St. Petersburg,or Clearwater Beach,and want a get-away from the beaches and tourists,by all means visit this hidden gem.

  1. I love it! Might have to make a trip over there. It looks beautiful. Loved your photos.

  2. Wish I lived closer, that would be a wonderful place to visit. It reminds me of our own Mounts Botanical Gardens. I went there on my birthday last March, and like you say, it was a whole different world.

    Thank you for sharing ~ FlowerLady
