A Day at Bellingrath Gardens

It had been a while since my husband and I visited Bellingrath Gardens in Theodore, Alabama.  Yesterday we had the opportunity to take our friends, Jim and Lila Cox, with us for day trip to visit the gardens, then to Dauphin Island for lunch, cross Mobile Bay on the ferry and back home to Pensacola Beach.

We just missed the peak blooming period for their azaleas and we've promised ourselves to make it over again a bit earlier next year.  If you'd like to find out what is in bloom at any time throughout the year, just click HERE.   And to learn more about Walter & Bessie Bellingrath, the home, the river cruise on the Southern Belle, and the incredible gardens, just click on any of the highlighted links.
