Little Bit O' Heaven

Tropical Gardens

Waterfall

In the greenhouse garden of Little Bit O' Heaven, macaws flew among ferns and tropical plants. The high point of the greenhouse was a fantastic forty-foot waterfall splashing down through rock and shell channels among miniature castles, bridges and houses.

Elsewhere in the greenhouse, paved pathways marked with decorative rock borders wound through tropical plantings and objects d' art. A scene of lush textures, colors and smells.

The greenhouse tropical gardens were torn down in 1981 during additions to the D.D. Palmer Memorial Building.
