Sandy's Garden

            Many beautiful gardens grace homes in Jacksonville, Florida. Among the most noteworthy is

Sandy’s Garden  in the Riverside/Avondale area. Sandy, a writer for television news, died tragically

five years ago. Her family dedicated this lovely garden spot beside their home as a tribute to her.


            My son Johnny and I came across Sandy’s Garden while preparing a photo essay on the statues

 of Jacksonville. Sandy’s mother graciously allowed Johnny to snap these pictures.
