As you stroll through the carport with a pecky cypress ceiling you will greeted by a flock of unusual and diverse flamingos and many statuaries the owners have collected for years that fill many niches throughout the property. The back yard is anchored by two massive old mangos and features many sitting areas nestled in the midst of pockets of bromeliads. Rest or linger under a bougainvillea-covered arbor and listen to the fountain while enjoying a cool beverage.
Butterfly, Bird & the Bee Sanctuary
John and Virginia Rosser
7085 154th Court North
Palm Beach Gardens
This isn’t so much a garden as a wildlife sanctuary. Roam the two acres under oaks, cypress and pines trees with native tillandsias attached to many trees. There are benches to sit and be one with nature and enjoying the sounds of the clucking chickens, rustling squirrels and rabbits or the drumming of pileated woodpeckers. The plants have been chosen to entice the butterflies, caterpillars, and pollinators, which encourage migrating and nesting birds to stop and enjoy a feast. The rear of the property is an apiary for several colonies of bees. There is also access to a canal behind the property where you may see waterfowl, tilapia, bass and other fauna of interest.

First, you will see a jade plant growing on a pergola, a stunning vanilla orchid scrambling up a tree and fabulous pieces of drift wood amidst a lovely patio and pool area. It is a breathtaking first view, but it won’t take long before you notice a very large shade house filled with beautifully maintained orchids. Take your time and stroll through the house filled with over 20 varieties of orchids and other exotic plants!
