Bellingrath Garden

Posted by Dawn at Sunday, December 11, 2005
Today, we went to the Bellingrath Gardens in Mobile, AL. It is about 30-45mins drive. We went there as they have the whole gardens litted up at night because of Christmas. So, we wanted to go take a look as our American friends recommended. We went there at about 3pm so that we can take pictures in the daytime as well and stay till at night when we can see the lights to make our money's worth. Costs us US$10 to view the gardens.



It is quite beautiful except that not many flowers bloom in wintertime. But it was good enough for us to enjoy our time..


I love taking pictures of flowers because of brightly coloured it is...and the mixture of colours.



Nice pond with water lily...


I love this Christmas tree made of up Christmas plants..all real and brightly red.



Spotted big fat squirrel..

CT making some funny pose


Nice long bamboo shoots


Nice scenery


More beautiful flowers..


Lights on at night...I could not take much pictures at night because my batteries went flat..sobsob. Think the weather too cold maybe


Nice snowflakes and angels litted..



At night, there were so many more people. All coming in to see the lights. There were even performances by a church playing handbells.

When we left, so many cars came in and parked the whole stretch of road far away from the gardens...Amazing how many people come to Mobile to catch this..
