Harry P. Leu Gardens are semi-tropical and tropical gardens. The gardens contain nearly 50 acres of landscaped grounds and lakes, with meandering trails shaded by 200 year-old oaks and forests of camellias. I enjoy painting in the Butterfly garden area. There is one are that they grow vegetables in and it has a nice building that offers shade while I paint. Lots of kids like to visit and they are always amazed to see an artist busy painting int the gardens. I have some of these paintings available at Dutch Door Antiques; just down the street from the gardens at 3106 Corrine Drive.
