Once again this year, Ladew Gardens hit it out of the park with their annual Garden Festival! But just because the Festival is over, it doesn’t mean that there’s nothing to do at Ladew.
But plants were blooming all across the property and I realized, after looking at pictures from prior years, that we’re a few weeks later with some of the plants. Other years, the azaleas and double viburnum have been out, but their flowers were nowhere to be seen! Here’s one of the famed topiaries – a rider on his steed, chasing the foxes, just out of the picture.
Honestly, nothing makes me happier than a gorgeous pink flowering tree. If you look back a couple of weeks when I wrote about the Al Capone cherry trees, you can see the difference in blooming times between the reflective heat of the city, and this windy estate in the country.
Here are some of the other things that caught my eye.
Our booth at Halcyon House Antiques was fabulous!
