Gardens bloom differently when you come to know their keepers.

It is a beautifully designed and crafted garden, marvelously restored to 1940s period when the writer's mother "had things pretty much the way she wanted them." I have visited... read more

It is a beautifully designed and crafted garden, marvelously restored to 1940s period when the writer's mother "had things pretty much the way she wanted them." I have visited many more impressive home gardens, but the Welty readers will all attest to the impact of familiarity when you are surrounded by the plants of her books and the garden-prose she...

This is one of my favorite places to go, particularly on a spring day when the spring flowers are in bloom. It is in our neighborhood and is really special.

The tour includes the house and garden. They have very cool bookmarks in the gift store. Our guide was well informed and pleasant

It was raining the day we were there, so we saw the garden only from the windows and the side porch, but it looked like it was a small gem. For garden enthusiasts, book time to see this while visiting the house.

The garden tour was part of the home tour. It was a cold, drizzly day but worth it to wander and see her lovely gardens.

There is a cat on the loose here so be brave and enjoy the sights but go inside and view the video. If you are a reader I would read her work first it makes it more interesting .

Great opportunity to walk where the Pulitzer Prize winner worked with her hands in the dirt to create such Southern beauty!

Very pretty garden but you need to be there in April for all the flowers. Magnolia trees were still blooming and iris plants but that's about all.
