So, what did you do on winter break? My family got passes to Leu Gardens in Orlando, and with that membership comes reciprocal privileges or discounts to American Horticultural Society partners which includes over 300 gardens, arboreta and conservatories nationwide. Exciting! We took advantage of this reciprocal privilege and journeyed out to Bok Tower Gardens, in Lake Whales. We were especially excited to see the newer addition to the Garden; Hammock Hollow Children's Garden.
From their website: "Gardens’ president David Price envisioned Hammock Hollow Children’s Garden as a place for kids to learn through power of the natural world and experience art in a tactile, meaningful way. “A children’s garden should provide a beautiful landscape that inspires discovery that lasts a lifetime. Our collective vision has been to build a place where nature is not a backdrop but a living entity for families to explore together and create a lasting connection. Hammock Hollow is a place for kids to find themselves and while getting lost in the wonder of plants, animals and art,” said Price. “These experiences will plant a seed of appreciation for the natural world in the children that visit and those seeds will grow and bear fruit in the years to come.”'
There really is so much to see and do there, that the 3-4 hours that we visited for, we only got to see a fraction of what they had to offer. We plan to visit again soon. While there, I took this opportunity to get updated photos of my girls. Enjoy the photos, and let's plan a trip out there soon for your family photos!
