A Secret Garden in Cobb County, Georgia, part 1, followed by part 2, then by part 3. Then in a post showing them in the fall, on November 23, 2011 in Return to the Smith-Gilbert Gardens, and then again last year on September 19,2013 in End of Summer in the Smith-Gilbert Gardens. On my last visit three weeks ago the snow was melting fast but I did get some snowy pictures. I returned to the gardens last Friday, February 21, 2014, to take some pictures showing the gardens now, when the weather is back to normal and spring flowers are starting to show.

here,) we did not drive, but we walked. I brought my cameras and took some pictures along the way. About 3 houses up on the other side of our street are a couple of old barns. Then on our side of the street, about 2 houses up, is a large red house with white columns - we do not know who lives there. Actually we hardly know any neighbors (even though we have lived here since 1976) as the houses are not very close to each other. (Click on photos and collages twice to enlarge.)

here to see it, describing the ice storm that had turned the metro Atlanta area into a skating rink for a week. It had snowed, then rained, then turned very cold, and ice had formed over the snow. It was very pretty - the snow looked like marshmallow cream, but it was dangerous to walk and drivers faced chaotic conditions on the road. The State of Georgia spent about $2 million a day to clean up the storm and the City of Atlanta purchased additional snow removing equipment at that time. Below are some of my pictures from that ice storm.
