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."

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.

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 .

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.
