Location Scouting

Another fun thing about writing is going places to get pictures! Since a book I'm currently working on has the climax at Bellingrath Gardens. So, I grabbed my camera and my hubby and spent some time enjoying a March afternoon and happily snapping pictures!

My favorite part of the garden has always been the mermaid fountain. She looks so serene and graceful. It's actually a pretty quiet spot there. It doesn't hurt that I've always been a fan of mermaids. There are times of the year that she's prettier because of the flowers around her.

This is the boathouse that sits on Fowl River and where the climactic scene will take place.

There is a quiet serenity to the gardens and if you ever make the trip to Mobile, AL take an afternoon - no matter the season and walk through the gardens. If it's during the Holidays - go late in the afternoon so you can enjoy both the mums AND Christmas in Lights.


  1. Wow, that looks so calming and beautiful. I actually felt a little stress lifted from my shoulders reading that blog. Beautiful pictures!
