|Some of the clever topiary that Ladew is famous for -|
My mom, sister and I having been enjoying the tradition of a Christmas outing for several years now. We've gone on holiday tours, visited bedecked nurseries, and oohed and aahed over historic homes decorated for the season. This year my sister suggested a visit to Ladew Gardens' Christmas Open House. After viewing the gardens this past summer with her family, she took a gamble that the Christmas tour of the estate house would be worthwhile - and did she ever score!

If you have the opportunity to visit Ladew's Christmas Open House next year, take it! We're told that every year the house is decorated differently by volunteer garden clubs and designers. Visit here for more information (the website is gorgeous).
