Some friends and I recently spent a morning strolling through Jasmine Hill Gardens near Montgomery, Alabama. The setting was beautiful and serene, and the weather was perfect. Jasmine Hills is known as "Alabama's Little Corner of Greece" and features over 20 acres of botanical beauty and classical sculpture. It was conceived in 1928 by Benjamin and Mary Fitzpatrick, who made their home in an 1830-era cottage within the Gardens. The Fitzpatricks enjoyed Greek culture and made over twenty trips to Greece to study and purchase art objects for the Gardens.
Jasmine Hill Gardens has nooks and crannies and long paths to explore, abundant foliage, magnificent trees and patina that only age can bring. Here is a sampling of the lovely scenes we encountered:
I hope you enjoyed the tour. Have a great week!
