More of Spanish Point

 The Sunken Garden was built about a hundred years ago and has been restored.

 At one time this portal framed a view of the cove.  It is a beautiful lawn with several kinds of palm trees lining it.
 Spanish moss.
 The water garden has not been restored.  That is not pond scum, but tiny leaved duck weed.

Wonderful photos of this lush space. The one with the woman in a hat looks old-timey.

What a nice relaxing, beautiful place. That duck weed is so tiny and will take over.

I had to go back and look and I agree with Barb on the lady in the hat.

I love the photos. I'd love to see the Spanish moss. It is very cool that the old garden has been restored.

You're talking my language with that hanging moss. I do love that look.

The word lush comes to mind.

Wow what a great place to visit. I had to go back a post and read more about this interesting place.
I love visiting old places and learning their history.
Thanks for sharing this and the pics are great.
