Gardens of the Shoals

Tonight I will be doing a presentation to the Shoals Wildflower Society about local gardens that I have written about in Alabama Gardener magazine. This will mainly be a slide show of photos I've taken. Here is a sample:

Margie Anderton's beautiful wildflower paradise in Killen, Alabama (the article is in the current edition)



Leon Perry's azalea wonderland in Muscle Shoals



Dee Hubbert's garden here in Florence (this article hasn't been published yet)



and Charles Moore's magnificent waterfall garden (also in Florence)



There are other gardens as well. Their meetings are held at the Trinity Episcopal Church in downtown Florence and their is tons of food and usually door prizes. Wish me luck!

  1. Lucky! Lucky! Shoals Wildflower Society members! What gorgeous gardens! Your photos are beautiful Phillip... I particularly love the first two gardens. I am happy to wish you luck ... but I do not believe you need it. I am certain they will all be delighted!

  2. Here's a giant good luck wish and a big hug too! I wish I could see your slide show and hear the talk. Those gardens are amazing, but the azalea wonderland really caught my azalea fairy attention! BTW, I bought that cast iron half urn, just because you said I needed it! I am too easy! :-)
