2015 National AHS Convention

La Plata, MD(Zone 7a)

We visited eight fabulous gardens in the Atlanta area earlier this month. I took so many pictures that it seems to be taking forever to get them all organized and labeled- not to mention that the daylilies in our own garden really started to take off during the 8 or 9 days we were gone and trying to get caught up with them as well.
Anyway I've got the first garden ready, so I'll post a few of them. It is called Prissy's Garden I think named for a grandchild and belongs to Camilla and David Arthur.

Beautiful gardens! I love Kennesaw's with the Canna lilies as a back drop, Very interesting. I have always wanted HOLD YOUR HORSES and now I want it again! Floyd Cove has been a favorite of mine but expensive, they do give wonderful bonuses if you can manage to scrape up some $$.

I've got a lot more, but it's been hard to get to labeling them all with all the current blooms at home. I should be able to get to it soon with the season here almost over .

Hazel Crest, IL(Zone 5a)

Don, take your time. We have the fall and winter. Stretch it out. LOL !

La Plata, MD(Zone 7a)

I finally got the pictures labeled and organized for the third garden.It is called River Scape Gardens and belongs to Deb and Morgan Akin.It's in a picturesque setting on the Etowah River. It has a unique stone house, restored barn, a mature magnolia tree and fruit orchard.
The first picture is of the stone house.
Next is a picture of my wife Georgie in front of the magnolia tree.
The next two pictures are of part of the garden from the stone house's balcony.
Final picture is of the garden entry point.
