Knoxville Botanical Gardens . Knoxville Tennessee

The beginning of August is probably not the best time for me
to be most of a day outside … at gardens filled with pollen.
But when asked what I’d like to do for our anniversary …
“I’ve always wanted to see the UT and Knoxville gardens”.
Husband has wanted to visit Litton’s Market Restaurant and Bakery in Knoxville,
so off we went for a rare whole day together.

Litton’s was NO disappointment. at. all.
I suggest that unless you’re both VERY hungry,
share a burger platter (it was that big)
and then you won’t feel bad also eating a
perfectly perfect dessert from the HUGE dessert counters.
Cheesecake? … oh ma’ goodness …
thought somehow I’d already gone to heaven
without realizing I had died.
Writing this makes me want to get in the car
and go just for that … lol.
Visit as soon as possible and see it for yourself.
It will be one of the BEST ‘old diner’ experiences you’ve ever had!

UT Gardens was a teeny disappointing only because it was August,
and hot, and HUMID (it has been raining for days).
But Knoxville Botanical Gardens was enjoyable despite the weather.
One of its fascinating features is a set of round buildings,
simply described as ‘whimsical stone structures’ and part of the garden hardscape:
