Sandy Springs Garden Tour - Winterthur Drive

The second house on the garden tour was located outside the perimeter, on the banks of the Chattahoochee River. This was my favorite garden of the tour.

A 100 foot pond with bog plants and waterlilies great you as you head to the back garden.

Above is the view from the river.

There were many windchimes and birdhouses. Below is the "wind chime garden"...I love windchimes and birdhouses!

Below, you can see the leaves from a giant leaf magnolia.

Joyce and I decided that we could sit here on this bench for hours. We wondered if the people that owned these beautiful spots spent much time in them.

I had never thought of using a mirror outside, but it is lovely in this cozy's looking at you!

The owner's taste in art ranged from very classical to very whimsical.

The house is just as lovely as the grounds. The front doors were salvaged from a Danish castle circa 18th century.

I heard one of the volunteers say that the partys here could be quite grand....I imagine so! Thanks for joining me.
