It's my Birthday...

Woo hoo today is my birthday and it is also the last day of summer which is always bittersweet.. It's still warm around here so warm that we are still swimming. It has been many, many years since I remember swimming on my birthday but today I am. The question is....
will I do it in my Birthday suit .... wink ~ wink 
So do ya'll remember way back during the spring the NOGS garden tour that I never finished sharing with ya'll... Well I am going to finally finish sharing hope ya'll enjoy it..

Massie school is the oldest school in Georgia. The day of the tour students from all over and of all ages were in the gardens doing various types of art

some were drawing/ painting this beautiful young lady while others were using flowers or the entire gardens as their subject.

inside the school local florist/ wedding coordinators had set up tablescapes using fresh flowers and various styles of china and dishes.

next up was a newer courtyard garden where this lovely lady watches over all the pretties

there were two fountain gardens

the back wall had a line of magnolias and azaleas. That's my girlfriend Bobbie in the middle of the garden there is a fountain on her left and her right ... This was a big garden for downtown Savannah.

this porch is pure Savannah.. I love how the ceiling is pitched and of course the blue..

next was a wonderful reception tea at the Green Meldrim House at St, John's Church you can read about the home's history and see pictures here Green Meldrim House this home was built in the1850's and it is fabulous if you ever have the chance to see it do, you will enjoy it..

They have several courtyard gardens each one is
 different and beautiful .

This gardens was a nice surprise besides all of the normal southern flowers and shrubs 
to the right of the gate was a wonderful raised veggie garden

and it was filled with summer squash, eggplants, and tomatoes

and I bet she had some great meals all summer long from this little garden bed...
Well that's all for today more tomorrow unless I eat to much Birthday cake then I may be off doing laps instead of playing on the computer...
Thank you Bobbie not only for being my sidekick on the tour but for sharing some of your pictures with us and for allowing me to use your camera when mine ya !

hugs ya'll and happy Friday
