A few weeks ago, C & I had the opportunity to visit the Yew Dell Botanical Garden in Crestwood, Kentucky and had a wonderful time. They have a neat history and I invite you to visit their site for the history and a list of the many events they hold there. I won’t take up much room on my post for that because I have many photos to share with you, and, yes, that is a warning!! Caution: extreme amount of photos ahead!
Crestwood is a suburb community of Louisville, KY and the trip from downtown to the garden takes about 30 minutes depending on the amount of traffic. We turned in and spotted their unique entry gate and sign:
We parked and began looking for the entrance so we could purchase tickets and it is located in this barn. Looks are deceiving in this instance because there is a nice air-conditioned gift shop in there.
There was a sculpture exhibition going on at the garden and most of the artwork was for sale, but it was a little pricey for our checkbook.
Yeah, you are reading that correctly. We made sure not to break anything! Here comes the photo deluge. Don’t say I didn’t warn you…
Doesn’t everyone have a castle in their backyard? I loved this!
Beautiful views from the lookout above:
This space was an edible garden.
The tree lined allees were gorgeous.
You eyes aren’t deceiving you. That IS a giant ball made of tires.
We really enjoyed our trip to Yew Dell and highly recommend it for any garden lovers out there.
