I visited the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens way back in the fall of 2009. But I never got around to posting the delightful photographs from that trip.
Isn't this place truly magical?
The gardens have a long history that includes the design of the Italian garden by famed female landscape architect Ellen Biddle Shipman. This garden has subsequently been added to the National Register of Historic Places.
