Hi Everybody,

This tuesday December 4 we will paint at Heathcote Botanical Gardens in Fort Pierce. Heathcote Botanical Gardens consists of an assortment of specialty gardens including a Japanese Garden, Reflection Garden, Herb Garden, Rainforest Display, Native Plants Garden and a Palm & Cycad Walk. Its a lovely and fun place to paint. They are open 9 to 5 and admission at this time is $6.00.

From downtown Fort Pierce you can go one of two ways: The more scenic route is to go south approximately 3 miles on Indian River Drive. Turn right (west) on Savannah Road. Go approximately .2 miles. The Garden parking lot is on the right. OR, go south on US 1 from downtown/Orange Avenue area approximately 2.5 miles through the Virginia Avenue intersection. Pass Gardenia Avenue, which is the next stoplight. Proceed one more block to Savannah Road (no stoplight). Look for a Super Video Store on SE corner at Savannah Road and Heathcote signs. Turn left (east) onto Savannah Road; go two blocks. The Garden is on the left.

Heathcote Botanical Gardens in Fort Pierce offers a variety of Florida plant collections including native plants and flowers,..
