AllisonDuring day two at The Herb Society of America's 2010 Educational Conference & Annual Meeting of Members I had already done a lot of garden touring!

Our first stop was breakfast at the Centennial herb garden, which was donated and created by the Nashville Herb Society. The garden sits within a walled courtyard at the back of the Centennial Art Center, which also houses a full-scale replica of the ancient Greek Parthenon, originally built for the Tennessee 1897 Centennial Exposition. The garden featured lovely, mature lavender and some beautiful hyssop plants.

This facility used to be a swimming attraction. The pool house is now the Centennial Art Center and the swimming pool is now the gorgeous herb garden. These are some pictures of the herb garden, which sit in the shallow end.

The art center has parties and weddings at this facility. How much fun would it be to have a dance floor in an old deep end?!
