Spring in bloom

I am back from Easter weekend in Callaway Gardens. I had a wonderful time with my family and enjoyed the beautiful spring weather. We were able to pack in quite a bit of fun. Friday night we had a belated birthday celebration for me at a delicious restaurant at the Lodge and enjoyed a pretty pink cake my mom and grandmother made for me. We also dyed Easter eggs that night. Saturday we spent the day biking on the trails and visiting the gorgeous gardens and butterfly house. Later that night we had our traditional Easter egg hunt in the dark with flashlights and I found the golden egg! Sunday we woke up to fun Easter baskets and went to the cutest little church in town. After brunch, I accompanied my dad and bf for a round of golf. After lots of relaxation and beautiful sights, we headed home on Monday. What a fun trip! I do love Easter — especially when I get to see my family.

Me at the Horticultural Center.

The light pink tulips were my favorite.

Easter bunny topiary.

Butterfly House.

The butterflies were beautiful!


I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend as well :)

I have many fond memories of Callaway Gardens ~ my parents took us there often for little weekend getaways! I always loved staying in the A-frame cottages!

Love the pics! And love Callaway Gardens too. I haven't been there in forever, but my family and I used to vacation there for weeks at a time in the summertime. Loved the circus tent. :)
