As a fund raiser, the Atlanta Botanical Gardens put on a Gardens for Connoisseurs Tour over Mother’s Day weekend, May 7 and 8. In exchange for a hefty ticket fee, you were allowed to politely tromp around the front and back yards of “Atlanta’s finest private gardens.” In the event you were to think that you could do anything more than a polite tromp, they had an off-duty policeman at each house which greatly surprised me.
Of the 10 gardens on the tour, Priss, her husband and I were able to visit 6 before my bad knee rebelled. I offer photos of the garden elements that caught my eye.
