Leg Two of the Keys Garden Walk

Waterfall at the end of the Dolphin pool.

My next stop was at Island Dolphin Care. The gardens here were planted by a couple Girl Scout Troops!
I think they did a wonderful job. There were a lot of natives and butterfly attracting plants.

The next stop was on Seagate Blvd. This home was planted with natives fairly recently. It looked great for a newer garden, and it will only become better with age. The mass plantings of Ruellia looked wonderful.

Not actually part of the garden, but I loved it just the same, was the canoe sandbox.Boat Sandbox

From here I stopped back at Dad's and then stopped at Beach House Gardens Nursery. They had free snacks and water which was well appreciated. I had a guava turnover, interesting and yummy.

Hibiscus at the nursery.

Very interesting gardens to come soon...
