The Birmingham Botanical Gardens

Happy Thursday!  I promised to show some photos from our afternoon at the botanical gardens, and here they are!  Shelley didn't have school on Columbus Day, so we went to brunch and to the gardens with my friend Barbara and her daughter (Shelley's friend) Anna.

These first few photos are of the Leaf & Petal shop (my favorite in Birmingham).  I love all the pumpkins and pretty fall planters!

I love the pumpkin topiary!

We only had time to enjoy the rose garden and Japanese garden.  I could have spent hours in the rose garden!

For some reason my camera started acting weird in the Japanese garden, so I don't have many photos there.  

But remember this, my lovelies:

Until next time...

  5. Such pretty types of pumpkins. I don't think I've seen the Fairy Tale pumpkins before (quite the price on them too). I've started buying a mix of pumpkins and squash so we can eat the decorations after Hallowe'en. Did they put a stick through the topiary? or were the pumpkins just sitting on top of each other? I love the idea and would like to give it a try.

  10. Beautiful. I love all the roses. I've always wanted an English Rose garden. My husband thinks I'm nuts for constantly adding more roses to our garden.
