Savannah

I had the pleasure of taking a short getaway to Savannah, Georgia in March. My husband was there working, and even though March was a very busy month for me, I was determined toimg_0907 make time to visit this city that has been on my bucket list for years!

We left the boys with John’s Mom Marie. We got a few days to visit with her as well!

At the Botanic Gardens in Washington DC

 

My ten year old is passionate about botany, so we visited the US Botanic Garden in DC.  I have been there several times, but it is always inspiring.

I spent a bit of time enjoying their poison garden!

Savannah is a truly beautiful city. I went to college at LSU in Baton Rouge, which has a very similar feeling, with huge sprawling live oak trees covered with spanish moss. But Savannah has moss-covered palm trees, dogwoods, and redbuds thrown into the mix. This crepe myrtle was probably the most interesting one I’ve ever seen!

You can tell it’s in an cemetery. I spent almost two hours wandering in this historical cemetery, taking photos. I loved all the willow trees on the headstones, which are a symbol of mourning.

img_1054The cemetery was bordered by new construction, and the old headstones that had to be moved were lovingly placed along an outer wall.

The azaleas and camellias were in bloom everywhere. So gorgeous. It made me ache for Louisiana in the springtime.img_1128

I spent a lot of time exploring the historical sites and the art museums on my own, since John had to work. Savannah is a great city for a vacation. It’s easy to walk, and one day I did a hop-on, hop-off tour for a very reasonable price.
