Bok Tower Gardens

If you are regular readers of our newsletter, you already know that we love to Garden.  If you are new to our Newsletter, welcome, and FYI we Love to Garden.  Recently we were at BOK TOWER GARDENS in Lake Wales for a class and took an inspirational walk through the gardens.  The gardens are extensive and even after a hot summer and a hurricane, they still look quite lovely.  BOK TOWER GARDENS sits atop one of the highest peaks in Central Florida.  In fact, the gardens are perched on the only hill we see for miles.  BOK TOWER is not only famous for their gardens but for their Singing Tower Carillion as well.  The tower plays twice daily and floods the garden with a lovely sound.  A perfect backdrop for a picnic, a walk or quiet contemplation.    The gardens are beautiful and in the middle of summer, on top of the hill, you can even catch a breeze.  

This year, we again will be enjoying the sounds of the season as the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra performs their Holiday Concert.  We pack our lawn chairs, a small table and tablecloth, a good bottle of wine, a few glasses, some bread and cheese, and pick our spot on the lawn to enjoy the sounds of the evening.  It is always fun and is a great start to the Holiday Season.  

BOK TOWER is only about 30 minutes from Solivita and provides Central Florida and Solivita Residents a great opportunity to learn about gardening in Florida, and enjoy the bounty that each season offers.  We have taken cooking classes, gardening classes, we have just signed up for a print making class, and now I see BOK TOWER is offering Meditation Classes too.  Although we did not sign up for Meditation Class this season, it is a consideration for next season.  

Anytime is beautiful at BOK but Sunrise is especially beautiful.  The gardens are lovely, the Carillion Tower is all tuned up and singing, and this is a great time to visit, take a tour, take a class, or just bring a book and enjoy a quiet afternoon in the garden.
