Deep Cut Gardens

New to me, Deep Cut Gardens proved to be a real hidden treasure.
I have lived in this area my entire life, I have never heard of nor visited this 54 acre garden.
It was beautiful, colorful, bee's and butterflies filled the air.
















This part of the garden/park was home to beautiful flowers, 
vegetable plants, gnomes and fairies.

We missed the rose garden, pergola, koi pond, greenhouse and horticultural center.
Mostly, because I did not realize how big the garden was,
and primarily because we were so hot, 
I suspect we both hoped this was all there was to see.
- sad, but true -
We plan to go back in the fall, to see everything...
and really explore this hidden gem in cooler temperatures.

The Cosmos Are Blooming...





Cosmos are showy annuals, with bowl shaped flowers and long stems.
They are great cut flowers and they will attract birds and butterflies to your garden.
