As summer cloaks the South in a mélange of brilliant color, we celebrate the splendor of our region this time of year with our annual outdoor living issue. Throughout these vibrant pages, we showcase dynamic flower arrangements and alfresco table settings along with glorious gardens and open-air retreats. Journey with us to a 30-year-old resort with European flair in Georgia, spend a weekend away in beautiful Bowling Green, Kentucky, and continue with us in our Grand Getaways travel series with a stop at Savannah’s fabled Hamilton-Turner Inn. Learn of inspiring Southern entrepreneurs creating distinctively coastal jewelry, delectable chicken salad, and elevated picnic setups. You’ll love our seasonal menus that feature bright and flavorful bounty—from a garden-front buffet to a ladies’ luncheon with light and fresh fare, as well as a lineup of reimagined regional classics. Here’s wishing you a wonderful start to the summer!
