This post is a continuation of an earlier post, more photos from my day at the local historical 'Airlie Gardens' in Wilmington, NC where I live. Click on the photos to make them larger for more detail.
Airlie is most noted for it's former gate keeper, Minnie Evans, whose art is none short of fantastic when you consider Minnie had no formal art training and was using crayons and colored pencil on discarded bags and whatever else she could find to draw on! Here is one of her drawings, titled simply: God
One of the many beds of tulips backed by hedges of azleas
True to the south, we have a LOT of Spanish moss as can be seen at the Airlie pond
Isn't this the most exquisite design inside a tulip?!
My favorite photo of the day - turtles!
I hope you've enjoyed a bit of spring via the photos. I'll be back soon with my finished Parade Day quilt!
