If you haven't been to Bear Creek Gardens you have missed out. They are located on the banks of the Duck River in Columbia. The setting is beautiful and very historical! They have a huge selection of trees, shrubs, flowers, pots, urns, statuary, benches, birdbaths & Al's Art fountains. Don't miss the neat gardening gift shop located in an old farm house. If you are stressed go there to unwind. It's a treat!
