Recently I had a remarkably delightful experience -- I attended a wreath-making workshop at Southern Exposure gardens in Battle Creek, MI.
I'll be sharing the wreath-making experience in a future post at another site (more on that later!). But I wanted to take you on a mini-walk through the gardens, just to whet your appetite for what's to come.
When you enter the Southern Exposure gates, this big vintage car is the first thing you see. It sets the mood for your visit.
As you wrap around several old buildings from the original far -- each named (The Corn Crib, for example), we parked -- yet another vintage car!
Everything about this place looks great. So many touches, like the flowers in the bird baths.
Even the outhouse is picturesque!
There is a fair amount of garden statuary.
...and plenty of whimsy, too.
Just walking around the gardens is an incredible experience -- and it was still so early (late April, here in Michigan) that few of the flowers had really popped. Later in the season it will be drop-dead gorgeous.
Of course, Southern Exposure is an experience -- and the time we were there was indeed all that and more. But that's for a future post. Until now, a little selfie in a mirror located in a gazebo. I'll be back!
