Neighbours talking over the garden gate has long been a tradition. They share gardening tips, complain about the weather and pests yet are ever eager to discuss their gardens. That is what I had in mind when creating this blog. So stop by my garden gate to find out the latest happenings in my garden.

Happy Gardening!

Hollis Garden (Lakeland, Florida)

Hollis Garden
January 14, 2009

During our recent vacation to the sun and warmth of Florida our friends who vacation there for the entire winter (lucky them) took us sightseeing. One of our stops was Hollis Garden. This beautiful 1.2 acre garden that was donated to Lakeland is located on the south side of Lake Mirror Park in Lakeland. It is home to thousands of flowers, trees, shrubs, vegetables and other vegetation. There are beautiful fountains, waterfalls and grottoes. As we wandered through the garden I could not help but marvel at the not only the vast array of vegetation but how neat and tidy everything looked. This park must take a considerable amount of maintenance. The sun felt wonderful. I could have spent the entire day it that garden!
Happy Gardening!
