~Come With Me To Savannah~

Hello everyone! Hope you're having a great Memorial Day weekend! Dear Hubby and I are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary with a romantic trip to Savannah. While Charleston is my all-time favorite city, Savannah ranks a close second.  I love the moss-covered trees!

Yesterday, we decided to take an early morning stroll around the historic district. Jones Street was my favorite. The weather was sunny and mild; and the area was very serene. I thought I would share some of my favorite pictures with you. 

This was the very first courtyard that we saw. We got lots of great ideas from this one! I loved all of the boxwood plants, along with the potted flowers. The jasmine was trained on an iron trellis above the doorway.

Even the large crepe myrtles were draped in moss! The fountain was so soothing.

I loved the iron gate on this little side entry...

I was also enamored with all of the red doors that I saw...

Here's another one...

And another...I am seriously thinking about changing my black door to red!

We also took a stroll to Forsyth Park. There was a cool breeze blowing and plenty of places to picnic. 

It was so romantic to stroll beneath the moss covered trees. (Wouldn't this be a beautiful place for a wedding?)

The Forsyth Park Fountain was the main attraction...

The Forsyth Park Inn was just across the street.

The neighboring homes were charming, as well.

We also visited a lot of the boutiques in the area. There were so many pretty things to see (and buy). But, since we are making some changes to our courtyard area this year, it's the gardens that really have me captivated.

I can't wait to get out tomorrow to see more of the city!
Hope you're having a great holiday weekend!
