Callaway Gardens blooms should be spectacular in one week

Callaway Gardens
The cherry trees are in bloom and other plants and shrubs are showing nice color at Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, Georgia.

Noted meteorologist Kurt Schmitz was at the gardens today and reported that the azaleas are coming in a little slow this year, but should be really nice in about one week. Mid-April should be quite spectacular.

Callaway Gardens
Located on the beautiful rolling hills at Pine Mountain between Atlanta and Columbus, Callaway Gardens is one of the nation's most beautiful places. They were conceived by Cason J. Callaway in 1930. He discovered a rare native azalea growing in an area of worked-over farmland that year. With his wife, Virginia Callaway, bought the site and launched an ambitious project to create one of the world's most scenic gardens.

A labor of love for nearly 75 years, Callaway Gardens has achieved the dream of its founders. The scenery is spectacular and hundreds of thousands of people visit each year.
