Beautiful place! Well worth the visit. We spent a couple of hours walking around and didn’t see everything. The rose garden was very nice. We found the Tiffany Rose created by husbands grandma in 1955.

This garden bumps up next to the airport. When leaving the airport look to your right and you can see the lovely flowers and greenery.
