Mercer Williams House location of The Garden of Good and Evil.
We just got back from a fabulous vacation in Georgia.  We flew into Atlanta and visited Oakland Cemetery and the High Museum of Art.  If you think it is strange to go to a cemetery, you haven't seen a good one!  Oakland is historic and filled with beautiful sculpture and gardens.  Roses and iris were plentiful, and rosemary (one of my favorite herbs that doesn't grow well in Wisconsin) grew in hedges. 
No trip to Savannah would be complete without a trip to Paula Deen's store.
We then traveled to Savannah and stayed on Tybee Island just 20 minutes outside of the city.  We took many treks into Savannah and walked many of the beautiful squares it is famous for.  Savannah College Art and Design (SCAD) occupies many of the buildings throughout the city including a contemporary museum, ShopSCAD, a retail store for students, alumni and faculty to showcase their work and a restaurant run by the school that provides jobs for the students.  They served the best fresh lemonade I've ever had.  Enough words, here are some photos!
