“Did you know there is a “National Public Gardens Day?” I sure didn’t, but when I read about it on the Atlanta History Center website, and they said in honor of the day you could tour the Swan House Gardens…….FOR FREE….I couldn’t resist the opportunity for a photo outing. And, since it’s way more fun having a fellow photographer with you I invited my friend and sister-in-law, Janice to join me.
While most of the floral was in transition (azaleas and rhododendrons had long dropped their blooms) the summer greenery was vibrant.
There was so much to see on the grounds…..there were even statues in the middle of the trail;
And, historic farmhouses which had been moved to the property for preservation,
There were even life-size playhouses built for the original owner’s children! This was my favorite……the Victorian Playhouse.
It was such a fun outing and a great way to practice those photography skills! I was so glad I brought along a second camera so that I could use my macro lens!
Weather wise, I couldn’t have picked a better day as there was so much natural light…..no flash needed.
Here’s to a new week with new adventures!
Until next time…
