To celebrate the first day of spring (March 21), I will be hosting a meet at Harry P. Leu Gardens in Orlando, FL. Now last time we went, it was late in 2006, all the plants were NOT flowering and though it was beautiful anyway, it was hot. So here are the broken down details.
Date: March 21, 2009
Garden hours: 9AM – 5PM
Meet time: 10AM
We will wait around until 11 so we know everyone is there. If you are not there by 11AM, we will go ahead but we shouldn’t be too hard to find. ^_^
Cost: Admission is $7 per person which includes a house tour, which we will go on.
Food: I will be making sandwiches. Leu Gardens has a wonderful patio area with tables and chairs where we are able to eat. It is close to the parking lot as well, so if you bring a food container, you can run it to the car after. If anyone would care to bring anything, please feel free.
Directions: Very simple. Get on 17-92 (Mills). Going towards the science center. If you are coming from the NORTH then it’s past the science center, if you’re coming from the SOUTH you’ll see the signs. The signs that lead to Leu Gardens are blue.
