Cathedral Gardens

Cathedral Gardens, located in the small town of Henryville, Indiana, covers fifty-two acres, 15 of which are manicured gardens.  The place is absolutely lovely - so peaceful!  The gardens are actually made up of thirteen individual gardens.  Visitors will see ponds, fountains, statues, and of course, plenty of colorful flowers and plants.





 To enter the gardens, you will have to park in front of the property, and take a tour van.  Once there, you can stroll around and enjoy the beauty.  Visitors are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch and relax in the tranquil gardens.

 The gardens are open May 1 - October 31.  Tours are Monday through Saturday at 9:00, 11:00, 1:00, and 3:00 PM.  Admission is $15.00 for the first visit, and half price for return visits.










One more thing, before I close:  I am a guest on author, Virginia Wright's blog.  I'll be giving away free copies of my book, That Baby Woke Me Up, AGAIN!    And tomorrow (November 5th), I'm participating in the I'm Thankful for my Readers blog hop  on my other blog, Mama Diaries.  I am very thankful for all of my followers here!  To show my appreciation, I will be giving away an Amazon gift card.  Please stop by and comment, so you can have a chance to win!
