Florida Gardens

A trip to Florida visiting several garden road side attractions. First up is the Sunken Gardens in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Next up is Cypress Gardens, a fantastic roadside attraction.

Last Garden is Busch Gardens. First up a nice shot of a parrot riding a bicycle.

A pose with one of the fiberglass draft horses.

A bathing maiden in one of the many waterfalls. I would love to have heard the banter about where the guy wanted to pose.

I love those pictures with the signs, especially the Sunken Gardens!

I love these pics too! I wish I had gotten to see Cypress Gardens before all the changes. I guess it is now Legoland. On one of my trips to FL, I had one extra day to spend and I chose driving to Tampa to see Busch Gardens instead of Cypress Gardens.

That building behind the lady and the horse is the Busch Brewery, which they tore down in order to build a giant wooden rollercoaster. I always thought it was weird that BG in Tampa tore down their brewery to expand their amusement park, and BG in California tore down their amusement park to expand their brewery.
