An Autumn Visit to Nashvilles’ Cheekwood Estate and Gardens

During our road trip adventures, we traveled to Nashville Tennesse to visit family.  Nashville isn’t just about music and BBQ – it is the home of some amazing American history.  In this post, I share a beautiful autumn visit to Cheekwood Estate and Gardens.

Autumn at Cheekwood College

My husband and I had so much fun down in Tennessee last Autumn with my Niece and her babies.  Cheekwood Estate and Gardens was the perfect place to take these kiddos.  There was plenty of space for the under 3-year-olds to run about and explore.   The collage above features a few of my favorite photos.

Here is my video I put together from images I took at the gardens and estate. It was a super fun day in Nashville with family.

Autumn Visit to the Cheekwood Estate and Gardens

It is hard to believe only took over 500 photos at this scenic estate using my iPhone. The day was to be with family so I didn’t want my big bulky camera knocking around when I love holding my nieces’ children.  The images turned out GREAT!  Here are a few of my favorites.

Saliva and Mums

I just love this color display.  This is a totally doable plant scheme even for my zone 5b Ohio garden.  The grass, bee balm and I think the purple is a Veronica or salvia.

blue agave

TOO DIE FOR!!!!!  I am a nut for these agave plants. I wonder if they take them in for the winter?

About Cheekwood Estate and Gardens

Cheekwood is a 55-acre botanical garden and art museum located on the historic Cheek estate. Leslie Cheek worked C.T. Cheek & Sons—the largest wholesale grocery distribution conglomerate in the Southeast region of the United States. The couple built the estate in 1929. Leslie bought stock from the family member who happens to be creators and brewers of MAXWELL HOUSE COFFEE and TEA.  This investment helped build the estate and garden. Today, visitors enjoy family activities, programming for all ages and year-round festivals celebrating the four seasons. From 150,000 blooming bulbs in the spring to one million holiday lights in the winter.  We happen to visit in Autumn – which was spectacular! 

Map It

The drive to Cheekwood Estate and Garden was pretty easy. No Construction at the time and easy to get off the main highway around Nashville. Below is the map.
