Dreaming of a White Christmas

“Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.”      Norman Vincent Peale

 

 

While it is highly unlikely that snow will create a white Christmas for residents of lower Alabama,  marvelous alternatives are available.  The snowy white specimens of the camellia family located at  Mobile Botanical Gardens and Bellingrath Gardens are joined by a plethora of festively colored camellia family members  which  provide a wintery afternoon of ethereal pleasure. Visit  Mobile Botanical Gardens  and Bellingrath websites to plan an escapade among  the exotics.
