DayTripping from Americus - Massee Lane Gardens, Home of the American Camellia Society

With the current government shutdown, the National Historic Sites are closed.  Visitors to our area have been asking what else they can do.  This time of year is THE TIME to visit Massee Lane Gardens, Home of the American Camellia Society in nearby Fort Valley.  Less than an hour away from Americus, there is always something blooming at Massee Lane Gardens.  But, right now, the camellias are definitely the stars of the garden.

Although these photos were taken a few years ago, they give you an idea of what you can see when you visit the Gardens.

Please click the photos to see them full size as a slide show.

Beauty is everywhere.

This was the first time I had seen rosemary in bloom.  Now, one of our own rosemary plants has flowers, too.
Besides the outdoor garden areas, the indoor Boehm porcelain collection is truly worth taking the time to visit.

This is just one of the wonderful local attractions you should consider visiting when you travel to our area.  There are some really beautiful camellias just a short stroll from the inn in Oak Grove Cemetery, if you don't have the time to drive to Fort Valley.

Thanks for checking out our latest Americus Garden Inn blog entry.  We're looking forward to sharing our home with you.
