Savannah’s Saint

Savannah is known for many things, but curiously Saint Patrick’s Day  is one of the best known.  Take it away for Saint Patrick

Even the water in the fountains turns green, most gleefully!  Dear husband wanted to visit this square as we had not ventured to this one on earlier visits.  SO glad he pushes me always to walk a little further and explore more!  The signage was discreet yet informative.

As a member of a national garden organization, the Garden Club of America, I am aware of what other women are doing in their “neighborhood” through their local Garden Club;  I was impressed to see that a GCA Club, Trustees’ Garden Club, had a hand in this special space in the middle of a beautiful city. (See plaque)

Gardens are transformative, especially  in busy, noisy crowded cities.  Green water or not, Savannah’s citizens are better for having this place to retreat to on a Southern Spring day!Forsyth Park, Savannah GA

The historical area of Savannah is perfect for wandering and looking if you love architecture, and for garden lovers, there are treats to be found in little nooks and fun to peak down alleys and around corners.

Our stay on Skidaway Island, a short way from Savannah, was lovely too with suburban appeal and a quiet relaxed feel.

As one of my readers has stated, “Spring has Sprung in the deep South!”  The camelias are blooming

The critters are awake and moving about in lively mode.

This trip made me wonder if I could be a happy gardener among the creepy crawlies, flying biters, snakes (!) and alligators!!!  I don’t know, but this little fellow made me smile!

And he’s green ! Top o the morning, and Happy Saint Patty to you!

    How fun! I Had no idea they colored the water green, but it’s wonderful! I can never get enough of beautiful camellias, either. Happy St. Patrick’s day!


  3. I like your opening shot particularly. That is one grand fountain! I don’t mind snakes, but alligators in the vicinity of my garden would terrify me. The little green fellow at the end of your post however, is cute as a button.


  4. Greetings Jayne! That little lizard chap is marvellous!
