Sunken Gardens

Sunken Gardens and Florida Nature Photograrhy

I spent a wonderful evening at Sunken Gardens, one of the oldest botanical gardens and tourist attraction on Florida’s west coast. It was established by George Turner in 1903. Turner was a gardener and entrepreneur.  As Wiki stated: 

“Turner started planting papayas and citrus fruits along with other exotic plants on the rich soil surrounding his home. By the 1920s, Turner had opened a nursery and began selling fruits, vegetables, roses and other plants, and visitors were paying a nickel each to stroll through the gardens. In the fall of 1935, he fenced his garden and started charging an admission fee of 25 cents. The Gardens eventually became widely popular, and from the 1950s through the 1970s were ranked among Florida’s top ten commercial attractions.”
