  • I shot a maternity session there the other day and it is absolutely beautiful! Mom was pretty far along so we didn’t go all the way through the gardens. I have to save that for another day. What we did see was gorgeous and total spring time. We went early because we knew it would get hot fast and we were right. It’s a beautiful place to stroll through. Very peaceful, beautiful flower colors and butterflies! BTW, for photographers, you have to call them if you’re going to do a photo shoot with any props or gear. They were fine with us going with just the camera and shooting along our way.
  • This 40 years old garden is like a tropical oasis located in the city of West Palm Beach, but the only noise that will remind you of that is the planes landing in the adjacent airport. It’s a vast garden (16 acres), so you can easily spend a few hours in there. Among all the plants and vegetation (all of them labeled with their names) there are also an herbs’ garden, a “zen” area, a pond with fish and turtles that you can feed (you purchase the bag of food for $1 at the entrance), and a nursery that sells plants. It’s a great place to go to relax (even during the hot summer), and a perfect one for photography. The second Saturday of the month, Palm Beach Residents enter for free: we will surely take advantage of that above all during the winter, and we will also keep an eye on the special event, activities and exhibits that the garden offers from time to time.
