Joyce asked me to join her on the Garden Tour presented by the Sandy Springs Society, here in the Atlanta area. (Sandy Springs actually recently became a city itself)
We visited the gardens of five homes, the first being Glenridge Hall.
This home was built in 1929 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The estate consists of 47 acres. In front of the house are several native plants, including 80 year old mountain laurels. Behind the house is a multi-tiered rock garden with many perennials and annuals. There were some beautiful iris and peonies.
