Summer Flowers – Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens

Finally getting around to combing through the 2000+ pics from our trip to bring you some highlights. They are low res so they will load quickly, but most retain their beauty.

Here was the first stop along the way: the Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens.

I hope you enjoyed your tour in the comfort of your air-conditioned home… it was 101 when we went through the gardens. We only went to a few areas that were of most interest to us, yet we were totally drenched by the time we got back to the car!

I’ll have more posts in the near future… please check back soon… or subscribe so you won’t miss any posts!
