I didn’t have to work today so Max asked if I wanted to go on a date to Sunken Gardens. I have been wanting to check it out for a while now and I found us a Groupon deal. It is similar to a place that I’ve worked events at near Naples called Everglades Wonder Gardens. Sunken Gardens is located in the St. Pete and is a side of the road botanical garden attraction. It is over 100 years old and was built within a sinkhole. There are so many beautiful birds and plants. We even saw a Zebrina, which is what we have on our kitchen counter right now (Sabrina the Zebrina). It looks so tiny from the road, but I would say we spent a good hour there. Check out the arabesques on those flamingos! It would be a great space for an event or a wedding too. One of my favorite coffee shops in town, Crislip Cafe, sells these massive stuffed croissants that I asked about one day. They told me they are from Southern Bay Bakery near Sunken Gardens. Um…perfect. It was right by the gardens. We tried the Cuban one. I had wanted to share, but Max said no. We got two and ate every bite. Glad I went to Pure Barre this morning : ) If you want to go on a cute little day date, this is the spot!
