Amazing. Bring shoes to walk around. This is well worth the detour. Spent over 30 minutes exploring.

The Cross Garden is still there! Dilapidation did nothing to reduce the splendor of this place. Hell is hot, but Alabama is hotter.

Visited the garden today and we were pleasantly surprised to find it in decent shape. Great opportunity for photos! Bring your walking shoes and pay attention to the areas blocked off by "no trespassing" signs.

Still there, still weird. It's definitely grown over a lot since I last visited in 2007. It doesn't look like anyone is maintaining it at all; shrubs and trees and weeds are sprouting up everywhere. Doubt much of it will be there in a few more years, so go now if you want to see the Cross Garden!
