Azalea Path Tour... Part 4

I have saved the best for last!
If you haven't visited in a bit...
Here is Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3.

The Azelea Path is on a beautiful lake...
And they have made this fantastic WATERFALL!
Pictures do not do it justice.  Just to sit there and take it all in.
I want to just sit IN IT.... so cool and refreshing.
But everything there is so pretty.
Here are some photos from 2009 I took....
This little girl statue is my favorite.  So darling.
I am still amazed she had all these azaleas out in the sun.
She has the magic touch.
She grows so many shade plants.... lovely ferns and hostas... and so much more.
Just heaven in a garden.
Another view.... there must be a hundred just around the lake.
This last image is from the website.  It shows the waterfall so much better!
Isn't it fantastic?
And the sound.... oh it is music to any nature lover like me!

"Azalea path has one of the largest collections of azaleas in the Midwest, if not the largest."

-Robert E. "Buddy" Lee
Past President of the Azalea Society of America
and a leading hybridizer of Encore Azaleas

Nestled along the back roads between Gibson and Pike County Indiana are hidden gardens called the
Containing one of the largest collections of azaleas, it hosts many unusual and ornamental trees. 
Meandering pathways lead to water features and unique sculptures.
