20 Beautiful Pics Show a Flowery Garden in South Carolina From the Early 1950s

A beautiful photo collection from Joel Gillespie that shows a beautiful garden of his grandmother Nanny in Columbia, South Carolina in the early 1950s.
“I found a small container old slides in the bottom of an old box of pictures. They are of my grandmother's garden, in the early 1950s.  
I was born after these pictures were taken, and grew up in a more matured version of Nanny's Garden, but I can say without hesitation that this was my favorite place in the whole world. I had the privilege of maintaining it for many years, and learned a lot about gardening from my grandmother. This was a special place.”
