This is the first garden tour I attended this season, there are several more on the agenda. I promise to post about them all.
Nothing says Welcome quite like a gate. I saw several that intrigued me on the Gardens for Connoisseurs Tour to benefit The Atlanta Botanical Garden.
My friend Becky rushing in to get detail photos of this delightful gate. We were tripping over each other in excitement. look at these ….
Clever designs and beautiful workmanship. We loved all the details. Gates like these were in several of the gardens, a wonderful piece, both practical and whimsical.
Several of Atlanta’s finest private gardens open for this annual event. These are all designer gardens with regular and knowledgeable crews to tend them. They are perfectly groomed. One will never find a yellowing leaf, no space left where a plant was lost, some annual potted plant is placed in its stead, very tastefully.
Touches of whimsy…….
The summer containers were packed with perennial foliage plants and annuals.
I was particularly taken with a table centerpiece …..
and of course the peaceful sound of water.
All in all a no miss event. With our weather this year, the gardens will be more beautiful that ever.
