With only about 30 minutes left in our self-guided tour window, Mom and I made a mad dash for the Rose Garden. We felt like we had to make a decision between the Rose Garden and the Vegetable Garden. Roses won!
I so wished for my great aunt to be in the rose garden with us. She had the most beautiful roses in her backyard in Atlanta! She always sends gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, and such wrapped in rose paper. The same rose paper! She must have a ton of it.
I’m sure Auntie could tell you the names of all these different roses. I just know them by color.
They were so sweet-smelling.
Raindrop on roses–now one of my favorite things!
The color and fullness of these double peach roses was incredible!
After the roses, we peeked over a fence to see the back-side of the vegetable garden. We still had the Summer Kitchen and Art House to see!
I failed to take any pictures of the art house. Wouldn’t you love to have a private little get-away place to go create?!
Wouldn’t you love to have a second kitchen?!
You may see a little reflection on these photos. I was shooting through the window!
Time was just about up on our Moss Mountain tour.
One last look at the roses on the side of the house. These are the same roses you saw from the upstairs bedroom here.
I guess the only thing we saw on the tour that we didn’t like was this…
Mom and I took some selfies on the front porch-which all turned out horrible! So, here is a picture of just Mom on the porch.
I love the coral benches. I would have never thought to use that color.
Allen and Laura were busy heading to Allen’s next engagement. Mom snapped this picture of Allen taking a picture of peonies under the big tree out front.
Later I saw where he posted the picture that we saw him taking on Facebook. Kinda cool!
As we headed toward the car, we stopped at the barn to take a picture of the carriage.
More cool lighting…
We enjoyed our tour so much. We were sad it was time to leave–
–or was it?
