My daughter and I went to see these gardens and natural lands in Cape May Courthouse. Having been to Longwood Gardens, I've seen huge places. We met Greg at the parking lot who directed us where to go and where the restrooms were located. This sanctuary is food for the soul and spirit. It's not so large that you walk your feet off trying to see it all. We loved the small surprises at every turn, the winding pathways that gave you a different perspective every few fee.
At the back where the hummingbirds appear in late July and into August, we met Missy, the gracious sole gardener for the entire site. My daughter and I sat with her for a spell and shared stories and learned all about this special place.
Missy had surgery on her spine and was getting back to taking care of this entire masterpiece just this year. The fact that it looked as good as it did, was a true labor of love and it showed in every nook and cranny.
If you are a person who loves to connect with nature and can stop and truly sit and see what is there, this is the place for you. We found it a work of art. I couldn't stop taking pictures, and many are going to wind up on my wall.
If you need lots of action and have young children who require bright lights and amusements, then go to the Cape May Zoo or the WildWood Boardwalk. Pick what's right for you and your family.
We will be buying season passes as the gardens change along with the wild life that visits there. This was the best time my daughter and I have had in the area. Thank you, Missy and Greg!
