BC: Truly a healing garden, at a very difficult time
FC: Cheekwood Gardens Nashville, Tennessee | November 2010
1: Looking for respite, while visiting Johnny at St. Thomas Hospital in Nashville, we found a nearby botanical garden
2: To our surprise, Cheekwood Botanical Gardens was having a special display of Chihuly glass sculptures
5: & Keith | Everything was especially impressive, as the night before our visit, they had their first "killing frost " of the season, and the color of the glass was in contrast to the frosted vegetation.
6: We were very aware of the intricacy, and time involved, in the installation of these pieces. Truly amazing!!
9: Chihuly in a classical Japanese garden
11: The Cheekwood Estate was the home of the Maxwell House Coffee founders and these gardens were behind the main house
13: All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love
14: From this day forward I promise to laugh with you in times of joy and comfort you in times of sorrow. I will share in your dreams, and support you as you strive to achieve your goals. I will listen to you with compassion and understanding, and speak to you with encouragement. | A modern museum built on the Cheekwood grounds
17: Botanical forms in "out of season" gardens
18: These spires were especially striking, when the afternoon sun hit this hillside
19: There were many water displays, that captured striking reflections
20: Love | Massive sculpture on the front lawn of mansion
