The sculptures, rare palms, geckos and lizards, as well as Ann Norton's studio make this a wonderful place to spend an hour or so. The woman at the admission desk volunteered a lot of interesting information about Ann Norton and her work.

This was originally AnnNorton's home and is on the intercoastal. She filled her backyard with sculptures. There are sculptures by two other artists also on display. Definitely worth the time to stroll this lovely garden.
