Mr. Froggie Went A Courtin in Americus

Every year, the toads and frogs return to our pond for a love fest.
Please enjoy the photos from today's festivities at the Americus Garden Inn.
If you look carefully, you can see all the different color and size variations of the toads.
And, there are a lot of eggs, lots and lots of eggs.

All of those eggs mean lots of tadpoles to eat the algae.  We love that.
So, please just scroll through and enjoy the photos.
It's a conga line!

Hope you enjoyed my pictorial of Toad/Frog Love.  Thanks for visiting the Americus Garden Inn Bed and Breakfast blog.

Glorious Spring at Americus Garden Inn Bed and Breakfast

Spring is a beautiful time of year in Americus, Georgia.  Please join me for a quick tour of the blossoms you can see right now in our garden at the Americus Garden Inn B&B.
This year, the azaleas have really put on a show for Spring.
The phlox is blooming in the stone arch garden.
A few flowers have just appeared on the Spanish lavender.
Beautiful clumps of yarrow adorn the garden.
But, the azaleas are the star.
We have quite a few varieties throughout the garden.
It's easy to miss this absolutely stunning iris blooming along the path.
This salvia has been providing lots of nourishment for the bees.
 and more azaleas.
The weigela has just started to show some color.
This particular snowball bush is incredibly prolific this year.

Day Tripping in Americus - Oak Grove Cemetery Camellias

I took a quick stroll over to Oak Grove Cemetery, just 1/4 mile from our door, to see which camellias are in bloom.  It would appear that they all are!  So please just click on the first photo and enjoy the tour of all the beauty right here in Americus.

I hope you enjoyed all these beautiful camellias.  Come visit us and see them for yourself.  And, of course, plan a visit to Massee Lane Gardens, home of the American Camellia Society, about a half hour drive from here.

We'd love to host your stay here in Americus at the Americus Garden Inn Bed and Breakfast.  Hope to see you soon.
