I was happy to see that the fire ant problem that figured prominently during our last visit was not a problem this time around. This is a very attractive garden and well marked. I am always surprised it is no packed on beautiful summer weekends.

Magnolias and rhododendrons have just started to bloom! We've had an incredibly cold and snowy winter, so we are far behind what we've been experiencing in the past few years. While you could certainly see blooms in April... More
