Lady Banks Climbs 30 Feet into Adjacent Trees

I have been waiting for this rose to bloom. For weeks I saw it climbing through the branches of the surrounding trees in a way that made it look like the tree had leafed out when it hadn’t. I was a bit worried when the rose started blooming profusely down near the base of the plant, that it was going to spend all of its energy blooming the bottom 10 feet but not at the top. But then, this weekend,  it started blooming all the way up what must be 30 feet into the surrounding trees.

And right on the heels of this display the peonies are getting ready to bloom. With all of the water they got this year, the plants and buds are looking really good. I will report with a photo when they bloom!

Add a visit to the Jeju Spa to your Weekend at The Urban Oasis

A few weeks ago, a couple came up to stay here from Newnan, Georgia, only 30 miles away. They wanted a relaxing getaway from their normal routines of being an educator and a minister. They were planning on going to a movie on the evening of day two but changed their minds when we told them about JeJu,  the Korean Spa we all love, and they saw someone else who was staying here come floating back  from a visit there.

This weekend the first thing our guest, Judi from Tampa did on Friday night was go to JeJu. She took these pictures. The spa is actually about a 20 minute drive up 85 off of Pleasant Hill Road and is in the parking lot of Gwinnet Mall. Now, you have to understand when you live in Intown Atlanta, we hardly ever go OTP ( outside the perimeter of Interstate 275 which loops around Atlanta). So if we say something is worth the trip then it is really the cat’s pajamas. And JeJu is the cat’s pajama’s. [Read more...]

Photos taken at The Urban Oasis Bed and Breakfast

Hi Judi,

Sean and I very much enjoyed our stay last month at Urban Oasis. Thank you again for the hospitality and the fabulous recommendations for lunch and dinner. We had a great time visiting Atlanta!

Thought you might like some of the photos I took while at your place. Your cat was a moody model, but worth it, I love how this picture came out!


Thanks again,
