Bellingrath Gardens – Theodore, AL

A few weeks ago, we went to Bellingrath Gardens.  I wrote about our experience here, but wanted to share this photo with you in honor of Photo Friday!  These beautiful Southern Belles wear these dresses, petticoats and all, in the ridiculous humidity and heat of the spring and summer.  You can read about the standards of the Azalea Trail Maid dresses.  I wish the gentleman in the front hadn’t been in my perfect shot, but I think it shows a little bit of new and old charm!  These girls represent true Southern charm and hospitality!  Those are the azaleas blooming all over the background.  It was an amazing sight to see.
