We went last March 2001 and this was one of the best trips we ever took. The azeleas were in full bloom and it was just beautiful.

I was there in November. It was so beautiful I couldn't even begin to describe it. Must see to believe. There were mums everywhere!!! Oh, and the rose garden! The ground were decorated for christmas. I wish I could have taken the boat tour and have seen the light display. I did take the tour of the home and it was fasinating learning about Mrs. Bellengrath. I can't wait to go back.

I grew up in Mobile, so obviously, we visited often. I was always enchanted with the Japanese garden. I haven't seen it in years. I wonder if it still looks the same...

Suzy, the Japanese garden is still beautiful. We were there Friday, July 26. Very humid but still worth the trip. The entire garden is so beautiful in the spring and just as beautiful in summer. - Terry

The Gardens are beautiful. We visited in May 2002. One of the vistas: bridge over Mirrow Lake

We were there in the latter part of March early April. The place was in total color with bloom everywhere you looked...I was in awe! It has been a few years but it was so beautiful, I still remember...We must have have had the timing perfect for the azaleas and rhododendras~~~ !
