Elizabethan Gardens - "All We Need is Love online Auction"


photo by Seaside Photography
The Elizabethan Gardens is closed for February 2022, but that hasn't slowed down the dedicated work of the staff and volunteers that have been busy as Bees.

In addition to getting the elaborately blooming gardens ready for the season, an online auction is live and ready for you to take part and help support this valued asset to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

The Elizabethan Gardens has become a favorite among dog owners wanting to take their dog for a leisurely & stimulating stroll. The visual beauty & vibrant and diverse colors, the sounds and smells within the garden lift the spirit of humans & dogs. There is just something almost magical about an English Garden.

Dogs have not been overlooked by the Staff & Volunteers of the Elizabethan Garden in the gathering of the auction items & collections represented in The Elizabethan Gardens
