Bonsai Saturday

The lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer in Fla are a great time to drive up and down US1 to explore, or maybe just go out on a boat trip.

Given that Needlepoint Land is closed on Saturdays during August and September, the hubster and I decided to pay a visit yesterday to the Heathcote Botanical Gardens in Fort Pierce.

Surprisingly, I had never been to this little gem of a place.

Definitely worth the trip. There are several themes within the gardens: Coral Reef, Reflecting Pond, Japanese, Rainforest, and the highlight, Bonsai Garden.

There is a replica of an original pioneer house and a Chickee Hut. While it was extremely hot and humid yesterday in this neck of the woods, I imagine this jaunt would be much more enjoyable during the fall and spring.

Next on the Summer Saturday field trip agenda is a visit to the Morikami Japanese Gardens near Palm Beach.

Then again, I want to go see my beloved panthers on the West Coast of Fla.

  1. You’re welcome! Btw the way, I bought a Jade bonsai a year ago for Needlepoint Land, when I opened the store, to ensure it enjoyed good Feng Shui!
