American Aquatic Gardens & Gifts in New Orleans

While in New Orleans, my hostess Alison introduced me to American Aquatic Gardens & Gifts.

Located at 621 Elysian Fields, New Orleans, LA 70117. They are just on the edge of the French Quarter. We just so happened to be on our way to French Quarter Fest when we stopped by.

This place has everything and it is all wonderfully displayed. Everything is a feast for the eyes, so much fun stuff and so many colors. 

Great plants, fun statuary and fountains, pottery, wall hangings, water plants, patio furniture and much more.

I was giddy as a school girl here, there was so much to look at and the staff was friendly and helpful.

There was a lot I could have come home with but certainly not doable to take home on the plane.

Please check them out if you are ever in the area! 

Who doesn't like a big cock?

Seemed odd for these Hibiscus to be in hanging baskets?!?
