Visit @ Callaway Gardens


For months now, we have been planning to visit Callaway Gardens, one of Georgia's attractions, but we always put aside the effort since we know that it is only 30 minutes drive away from home. Early this morning my husband tried to make a reservation for Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta but he was told that it is full for the weekends. Since he was all set to go out we decided instead to drive to Callaway Gardens. At the garden's entrance my husband asked if they have military discount. To our surprise military servicemember and dependent is free today. Great! It was a pleasant surprise indeed!

Callaway Gardens is a man-made landscape, an idyllic spot for communing with nature. You can marvel the beauty of the fresh environment, and the conservation of the different species of plants, birds, butterflies and other species is very inspiring. As a natural science major, I had a grand time refreshing my memory of the different varieties of living organisms. I travelled down memory lane when I had my Botany, Invertebrate Zoology, Taxonomy, Environmental Science subjects. We are planning another visit in spring time where the flowers are in full bloom and the trees will have its leaves back again.

I have some pics to showcase the scenic Callaway Gardens:

Hi Tess..yeah the view is spectacular there much more if spring time comes bet it will be wonderful. Thanks too for appreciating my photos.

Hi Che..yeah the flowers are beautiful i like it too. Thanks for the visit.

Hi Mareng Raq. yes oi mga tambok jud ang mga tanom. they have exotic plants there too. Wala pa mi kaplano when moadto sa Georgia Aquarium. Basin one of these weekends cguro. Depende sa libre nga time namong duha.

Halu silingan salamat sa pagbisita. Yes oi tsada ang front sa chapel nga nag atubang sa lake. Very soothing jud. Gamay ra man ang sulod unya mejo karaan ang setting =)

Hi Mareng! Lagi nindot ang mga bulak naa man sulod sa murag green house. Feeling summer or spring btaw. Mas tsada jud an palibot for sure if spring time and summer kay mamulak man pud ang mga kabulakan sa ilang mga trails and gardens.

Hi Joy! Yeah it's spring time here na hehehe. Btw, they have i guess more than 7 lakes there..it's all man made. And boating is allowed i think for certain times kasi they have a floating resto which can only be reached thru a small ferry in the lake. We haven't tried it though =)

Hi Jo thanks for the visit and yeah it's more like spring time there =)
