Upclose with flamingos.
Butterflies buzzing around the pretty flowers.
Super sized fish.
A few of the plants at the gardens.
Sunken Gardens is a 4 acre 100-year-old botanical garden near downtown St. Petersburg and one of the oldest roadside tourist attractions in the country. The gardens are located in what was a small lake 10 feet below sea level which is where it got the name. I hadn’t been in nearly 10 years and it’s so close so I thought I’d stopped in one morning for a quick walk. Since it was the end of summer, there weren’t a lot of flowers blooming but the gardens was a tropical oasis once you got inside. A handful of flamingos live there as well. It was a great little walk but so hot. My next trip will be in the winter.
Love the butterfly!
What gorgeous photos – well worth the journey!

Your Flamingos are sweet and beautiful!
