"Bellingrath Gardens and Home was the creation of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Bellingrath. The Gardens first opened to the public in 1932 while a national garden club meeting was taking place in Mobile. Mr. Bellingrath placed an ad in the Mobile paper, announcing that anyone who would like to see the spring garden could do so free of charge. After an overwhelming response, the couple decided to keep the gardens open year-round, beginning in 1934.

Throughout the year, this 65 acre Garden Estate is in full bloom with camellias in the winter, azaleas in the spring, roses in the summer, chrysanthemums in autumn and Magic Christmas in Lights during the holiday season. "

Sunday evening, my husband, son and I drove to this wonderful estate to once again enjoy the lights of Christmas. It is the most amazing place--a virtual fantasy land. This is our second visit (my son's first) and it is quickly becoming a holiday tradition. I'm happy to share some of the 134 pictures I took that night. Enjoy.

The stockings were hung by the fire with care...
