    Here in Mobile we have Bellingrath Gardens and Home.
    My family and I went there last Friday, and the azeleas were looking quite nice, indeed.

    One more thing, if you plan on going there be sure to take plenty of bug spray, the no-seeums are swarming like locusts over there!

    Quite lovely and thanks for sharing them all! We have some here but pretty far away. Have some nice grounds up at the Peace Arch park that separates the U.S from Canada. I'll post some pix here in your thread later that I took when on a bicycle ride up there. Have to look for them and get out for a walk before the rains swoop down again.

    I think I'd want to go through the ones that weren't shops and that were really still all filled w/ the ancient relics of the past and discover vampires and werewolves and George's mom's ghost,lol! And if it were late at night and dark w/ only candle's to lead the way that would be the best!

    My parents had a cabin in Franklin NC about 45 minutes from Ashville and I would go down there quite a bit. I would like to move there sometime or greenville SC is another pretty area.

    How do you guys deal w/the heat/humidity back there? Do you just get used to it or hide a lot indoors? It's humid here some too but w/o the heat so it doesn't bother us much.

    I hide inside jw, the heat with humidity wipes me out. Over 85 degrees and I start being affected by it, always been that way. Guess I should live in alaska, but couldn't handle the dark winters lol

    I guess I like the warmer weather because I feel good at temps around 80 and 85 and it just feels right .The bones as they get older don't like cold weather .Give me heat as long as it is not around a 100 degrees with high humidity I'm fine .You can hide out inside in the air conditioned space .

    I love the Biltmore! We went there for our honeymoon. To bad for us the azaleas were not blooming at the time, but it was still beautiful. We have two beautiful parks here in Fort Wayne. Lakeside park has the beautiful rose gardens and large natural pond. We had our engagement pictures done there. And Foster park is huge has a golf course and playground and what they call the "bridal glen" where all the beautiful plantings are. Our wedding photos were there. We also have a citywide trail called the River Greenway which follow the rivers that flow through and meet here too. I don't have any pictures of that though. I think it is 10-15 mile loop, but not sure, it may be bigger. Sorry my pics are all mushy ;-)
