The wife and I needed a bit of time from the kids. I havent been here since I was a teenager.

Mynelle Gardens began as a private garden created by Mynelle Westbrook Hayward and was acquired by the City of Jackson in 1973. It is a seven acre collage of several distinct botanical gardens with winding pathways, cascading pools, and distinctive bridges that lead across the pond to an island oasis. It typifies the southern garden with features worth emulating in our own backyards.
The Westbrook House was built by Mrs. Hayward’s father as a home for him and his wife in 1917. The Westbrook house and Gardens are frequently used for weddings and wedding receptions, as well as for a variety of meetings. Photographers and artists are encouraged to visit. Mynelle Gardens is a wildlife sanctuary and a haven for songbirds. The Mynelle Gardens’ Gift Shop offers Mississippi crafts, gifts, and items related to gardening. In years past, it was the scene of garden parties, civic fund raisers, and therapy for World War II recovering soldiers, and it has been visited by garden enthusiasts throughout the world. Enjoy I did.

Wow, that is a beautiful collage of a beautiful spot Dave. You did a great job in putting the video together, if I were nearby it would be a favorite spot to relax in and enjoy the wonders of nature.
