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.

  1. Scrolling down your post, Debbie has been pure delight. The photos are sublime. LOVE the Sunflower, how on earth did you capture that beauty?? AND....the butterfly resting on the red flower, a Dahlia or was it a Zinnia?? Whatever it was, the photo is amazing. How I would love to wander around that 54 acre garden filled with whimsy and botanical delight. I look forward to seeing your Autumn shots of this garden.

  3. So happy you took us on this gem of a garden, Debbie. Can't wait for you to go back in the Fall. I love those scarecrow characters! I've never seen them like that so it was a fun treat.

  18. You are such an exployer and find the most unique places to visit and this one is lovely. I liked the gnomes and fairies peeking out among the vegetation. The butterfly was lovely and the brown color of it brilliant. I will look forward to your fall visit for more beautiful photos.
    Blessings and hugs!

  20. Yes, yes, YES! What fun to discover a new place, and sharing it with us is wonderful. The little girl fairy and of course the Gnome are just precious, but it's all a treat for us too!

  21. I hope you go back, 54 acres!!! My goodness, what a pretty place. You never knew about it? That is so interesting. If we had water, that place is what I dream about making ours look like. I guess I need to move. :)

  22. Loved the Scarecrows!! I don't even want to call them so)))

  23. Isn't it amazing there can be all this stuff around us and we don't know about it, that sounds like our botanical garden, to get it all in properly it is either a very long day or takes a few trips, we have a few of those places on our list to revisit when it gets cooler :) Looks like you had plenty of beauty to see on this trip, love all their extra's in there too!

  28. Hello Debbie, I have heard of Deep Cut Gardens but never been. It looks a fantastic place to visit and I love what you have shown us of your visit. A very colourful place! Have a lovely day :)

  29. You've found another fantastic place for sure. So many pretty flowers and I just loved the different scarecrows (if you can call them that) the Cat one of course would be my favorite but that fellow with the carrot was pretty fun too. I do hope you go back again and get more lovely photos to share.
