We've been happy to see lots of visitors and tour groups in the Garden this May, celebrating spring and admiring the beauty. The photo above shows Belinda leading a tour of National Garden Club members in Georgia for the NGC Annual Convention in Atlanta. Notice that a group of schoollchildren are passing by. Our tour guide volunteers and Education staff have mastered the skill of coordinating groups and tour routes. When things get really busy I may get a call to lead a tour, which is always fun. Last week a group of Master Gardeners from Greenville, SC started their 2-day tour of Athens' gardens and nurseries at the State Botanical Garden. We hope the Garden Club members and Master Gardeners - and all of our visitors - had a great visit last week. And we hope to see you at the Garden soon!

If you are interested in a tour, call Andrea at 706-542-6195.
We suggest a late morning tour, ending with lunch at the Gardenside Cafe.
Interim Director Shirley Berry was a 'driving force' during the NGC tour.
