A Garden Club Field Trip

A few weeks ago some friends from The Garden Club of Jackson headed to Lake Bruin, Louisiana on a little field trip.  One of our members has her own retreat at the lake and is also great friends with the uber talented Becky Vizard of BViz Design fame.  I have written about her before so if you need the back story click here or here

I last visited in the heat of summer and so it was a treat to see her garden in sweet spring splendor…

after visiting Becky we all headed down the road to our friend Ingrid Taylor’s place where we enjoyed a delicious lunch catered by none other than Ingrid herself…

four families share a compound and we dined in their lodge…

each family has its own cabin and the porches are all equally inviting…
