Summit Gardens was a tropical paradise of one of the most beautiful gardens in the world (in my opinion). All the parrots singing in the trees, flowers everywhere in their natural enviornmnet, and my favorite place was the ponds. My family had alligators, for pets. As they grew too large, and their teeth too sharp, the Summit Gardens staff welcomed our overgrown pets into their ponds along with aligators of their own. I used to wonder which alligator might have once been mine.
