Wonder what your pooch will see at Bok Tower Gardens?  Come out this Saturday, September 5, between 9am and 2pm and enjoy the Gardens with your four and two legged friends.  There will be contests, demonstrations and vendors too!  A special "thanks" goes out to our pho-dog-rapher, Maggie.

#GardenTipTuesday

With Dog Day of Summer coming up we thought it would be a good idea to put up another tip with dogs in mind.

Here are some beautiful ideas to keep your pups happy and safe.

http://boktowergardens.org/calendar/dog-day-of-summer-2015/
A dog or dogs happily romping in the backyard is a classic dog-owner dream. Achieving this, though, takes more thought than just sending your dog out in the yard and hoping for the best. Take the time to make sure your yard provides your dog with the amenities he or she needs and loves. Fortunately, pet-friendly yard amenities are also great for people as well.

#GardenTipTuesday

This week is all about the pampered persistent pup in your life. We all know the one... "No, stop it!" or "I just planted that (you have to add the whine in here or it doesn't sound right)!"

We found some tips that might just do the trick. Do a little research before using spices. You want to make sure no one or no plant is allergic first. What do you suggest?
Learn how to keep a dog out of flowerbeds to keep your beautiful garden safe.

Eich's friend, Chip, invited all the Bok critters over for a cookout this weekend.  Do you want a hamburger or a hot dog?

This was sent to us by Tammy:
This was taken of my husbands parents, his brother and him back about 1955. The Adams Family! His mothers dad helped build the tower and was the one who put the birds on top of the tower. This was told to us by family.

#WeddingWednesday

Look who we found in the Gardens.  Steve and Margaret Holler celebrated their 23rd wedding anniversary with us.  They got married here back on August 13, 1992.  

Thank you so much for making us a special part of your lives.

The House on the property is amazing to see and appreciate. Gardens are nice, but almost too manicured if that can be a thing. The Tower is impressive and gorgeous, but good deal of it was undergoing renovations. The large sundial on it was impressive. Don't forget to view some of the vistas as the garden is at a very high elevation. The "bells" were a let down.

Sooo beautiful. It is so peaceful to walk around and take in the oh so lovely scenery. I wish I was here when the flowers were in bloom. It was still worth the trip tho. We also got to hear the man play the carillon. It was also amazing to hear about the history. Look around or eat first, either way, the food and drinks are soo delicious.

We go every year and Bok Tower Gardens is usually a 5 star experience. This year, however, there is a significant remodel and renovation taking place that covers about 50% of the gardens. There was construction equipment everywhere and almost half the gardens were closed. It was a major bummer since I first found out after I paid and was given a map showing half the park closed. I feel a sign before you pay would have been appropriate. I will go back next year hopefully the construction will be completed.

Thank you for your input. We will see if if have signs or if we need to make more. Please keep your eye here or on our site in order to see what's going on. Unfortunately making space for a new children's center and a new dining area takes time to build. Give us another chance, please.

You don't realize how peaceful you become in these gardens until after you have left. The peace is something we rarely get to experience in our hectic world. Worth the trip to this, the tallest point in Florida.

Thank you so much for your review. We are always changing so keep coming back!

I haven't been in years. But what an awesome place to get in tune with nature. Gotta get back. We still have an Australian fern tree we bought there. A constant reminder of good times.
