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.

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.

I saw it at night during a wedding reception and had explored it during the previous day. This is not the zoo and may not be exactly what you want for an activity, but it's definitely worth a visit.
