More for Pattis 1880s

Before we ate at Patti's recently, we walked the property to view the gardens and peek into some of the shops. Keep in mind it was a cold, rainy day in March, but come late spring and summertime, these gardens are beautiful. Patti's does a wonderful job of planting (and maintaining) lots of plants and flowers.
Above you see some of the garden sculpture in the flower beds.

Here's a long shot of the same bed where you can see the beginnings of the spring bulbs peeking up.

Patti's also has a great playground to keep the little one's busy before and after dinner.

Also dotted around the property are these adorable butterfly chair/benches. These make for great picture places during the summer time.

In the center of the property is a gazebo, which has been the site of many weddings and celebrations. I was here last summer when it was setup for an outdoor wedding and it was draped in white flowers and tulle. It was stunning.

A small stream runs through the property. Here I've taken a picture of it while standing on a small bridge that allows you to cross over it.

Here's a close up of the daffodils just about to burst open.

Adjacent to the restaurant is this huge working water wheel.

Today I am joining Outdoor Wednesday over at a southern day dreamer. Be sure to jump over there and visit more great outdoor posts.
