Bellingrath Gardens: "Flowery Gifts" Theodore Shopping Tip by grandmaR
Theodore Shopping: 1 reviews and 5 photos
Up until April 2006, when I visited a garden I always looked for a gift for my mom with the iris flower on it. When I was at Bellingrath Gardens, I bought her a T-shirt. Unfortunately, she went into the hospital just before I got home, and although I gave her the T-shirt, she died very shortly thereafter. I gave the T-shirt (photo 5) to the American Iris Society for their auction by which they raise money for the society. The AIS was one of my mom's favorite organizations.
What to buy: Their shop website says: "a variety of gift and souvenir merchandise specializing in Coca-Cola, gardening accessories and porcelain treasures. Throughout the year, the Gift Shop features gifts and accessories to compliment what is in bloom throughout the Gardens. From seasonal plants to rose gloves, from Mother's and Father's Day gifts to the perfect holiday gift and everywhere in between, the Bellingrath Gift Shop has a wonderful display of gift merchandise. "
