We pulled up to the "The Garden" for a fun time of eating and relaxing. "The Garden", is a garden that was built largely by the self employed artist, DeWitt Boyd. He is the project's architect who came up with the idea. The Garden has been a beautiful work in project for the last six years and is located behind the Calhoun Seventh-day Adventist Church, in the North Georgia Mountains. It is open to the public from dawn till dusk free of charge. It is beautiful and peaceful there. There is a lot of places to sit and just enjoy the scenery and also has a couple of picnic tables.
Julie, I think you are going to like this post with your hobby in miniatures!!
When you pull up to the parking area, there is this entrance arbor at the beginning of the pathways...it has a cross on it.
To the left of this arbor is a small beautiful field you saw with the picnic tables. But walk thru the arbor and down the pathways and you see a place... a place where very talented people take this...
The pathways are to small to get Antonio's wheel chair thru. But we can push him on the grass around the garden so he can see almost all of it from different angles. He loved just being out side seeing it all.
It is said that there are over 50 miniature buildings in all
The Garden. It is a wonderful place to go to spend quiet time. To wander about looking at the detail of all the castles and houses. A quiet beautiful place for a picnic. Even a nice place just to go sit on one of the many benches to think or pray. Even Elizabeth enjoyed the sunny day and just being out amongst it all.
Isaiah 58:11 And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.
To top our afternoon off...shortly after we got back home an unexpected car came driving down our long drive way and it was Tim and Zeke!!! Home a day early to surprise us all!! I can not tell you how surprised and happy it made me.
I am so glad they are safely home. I am so pleased that Zeke had a good time and did so well. He does not show much emotion unless I ask him to. But he was almost skipping around the house from room to room when he got home. I could tell he was happy to be home.
You have seen the pictures over time I have posted of my husband. Tim is always neat as a pin and well groomed. That is just Tim. He usually looks like this almost every day. Every hair in place and a dress shirt and tie on for work. He knows I like a short beard on him. So he never shaves when he is off from work, just for me. Usually it is just a day or so he might have off and then back to my clean shaven man.
Psalm 91:11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
