    I heard about the Washington Oaks Gardens State Park plant sale that is held the second Saturday of every month by the Friends of Washington Oaks, so we decided to make a day of it. The variety of plants was outstanding. Visitors will find Florida Natives including duranta, crinum lily, coral bean, fire bush and prickly pear. From Cactus to Stag-horns there is something for everyone. The park is amazing and the best part is, the proceeds go to benefit the park facilities.
    Whether you're looking for a short trip to enjoy the flowers that the park has to view or if you're trying for some table fare from the intracoastal waterway the park has something to offer for everyone. With a large playground for the kids and picnic tables with grills, you can easily stay all day and take advantage of all the park has to offer.
    We made a day of it and from start to finish it was a WONDERFUL time.

    This beautiful 1,500-acre preserve situated in the northern part of Flagler County was purchased by Henry Cutting in 1886 and passed on to his widow Angela Mills Cutting Worden, who eventually married Boris Scherbatoff, an exiled Russian prince. Angela assumed the title of princess and it was then that the once named "Cherokee Grove" came to be known as "Princess Place.

    The original lodge built by Henry Cutting stills stands as Flagler County's oldest intact structure. Also on-site is Florida's very first in-ground swimming pool.
