An English Garden on the OBX
The formal sunken garden at the Elizabethan Gardens on Roanoke Island is about a twenty minute drive from the beaches of Nags Head, but will take a visitor back to the time of Elizabeth I
in England. It was she who sent the first English colony to the new world in 1587. They landed here on Roanoke Island and for a time lived beside the native tribes. But alas, as resupplies from England were delayed by war with Spain, they did not survive. When help finally came they had disappeared, and became known as the "Lost Colony". The Gardens are a beautiful tribute to the area's history, and a botanical wonder today.
I hope you enjoy it,
