Harry P. Leu Gardens

In February 2018 we went to see Harry P. Leu Gardens to see the Art with LEGO Bricks by Sean Kenney. There were over 13 displays made with over 450,000 LEGO Bricks.   I have been to LEGOLAND and Disney Springs and  seen the LEGO sculptures at both places.  I had an idea of what can be made with LEGOs, with that said, I was still very impressed with the exhibit at Leu Gardens.   The details and colors were just awesome and I was surprised at how large the displays were.  Leu Gardens is a really beautfiul place to spend the day and take photos.  It was fun to walk the grounds looking for all the displays, it was a little like a scavenger hunt.

 

 

First set of  photos includes a map of Leu Gardens which shows the placement of each display and photos of all  13 Lego creations.   We visited each display and I took a photo of them all.   My favorites are the Peacock and Gardening Grandfather and Granddaughter but all of them were fantastic.    

  1.  Bonsai Tree,  2. Peacock,  3.  Buck, Doe, and Fawn (two pictures),  4. Giant Corn Spider,  5. Giant Pansy,  6. Galapagos Tortoise and Darwin Finch,  7. Ant Mosaic,  8. Gardening Grandfather and Granddaughter,  9. Monarch Butterfly on Milkweed,  10. Wheelbarrow,  11. Hummingbird and Trumpet Flower,  12. Birdbath,  13. Roseate Simmer Dragonfly

 

Second set of photos is of the grounds and it shows just a small portion of what there is to see. This was our first time to see the gardens and it was really worth it.   You can bring lunch and sit outside the Welcome Center (first two pictures below)  to eat.   I took pictures of the Leu House Museum (last picture below)  but the inside was not open to the public.  It is still being repaired from Hurricane damage.  I think it was damaged during Hurricane Irma in 2017.   We spent about 3 hours at the gardens and didn’t get to see it all, it is a pretty big place.  It had started to rain so we cut are visit short, however we plan on going back for another visit in the spring.
