A Few Pictures From the Albin Polasek Sculpture Garden and Leu Gardens in Orlando, Florida

I just spent a delightful few days touring the beautiful gardens and museums of Orlando, Fl. with my dearest friend.
I think the Polasek sculpture garden was my favorite of all that we visited. Look at these beautiful sights from the gardens.



Vesna represents the Slavonic god of spring. 1934

Front gardens

Always gracious Lada, mother of the Sun, is revered for her beauty and kindness. 1933


Bronze Pan, son of the god Hermes. 1920

Water lily

Eternal moment 1909, 1954




Then we visited the Harry P. Leu Gardens. I was thrilled to see the botanical watercolor exhibit of Val Littlewood. I recently posted an "Artists in the Garden"interview about Val's art. The butterfly garden was my favorite! It reminded me of the perfect cottage garden. Someday my garden will look like a perfect cottage garden too!

Both gardens are beautiful in their own way. Thank you for posting this, Karrita. The sculptures, the views of the cottage garden, the passion flower---loved them all. Good to read about Val too. Her sketches are awesome!
