The Myrtles

Go over at Susan's blog, http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/ to see who else is participating for Outdoor Wednesday. It's always fun to see plants and flowers and other outdoor pictures and today is our chance to see them.
Last Saturday, I wanted to show John a gazebo that I saw and liked so I dragged him to St. Francisville, LA. The garden shop was close to the Myrtles so we decided to eat lunch there. Oh, by the way, we bought the gazebo, an iron swing and 2 concrete carved pedestals. I'll show them to you after they are delivered and in place.
If you watch the TV show, A Haunting, you probably have seen this antebellum house featured to be one of the most haunted houses in Louisiana. We took AJ and her mom here to tour the house 2 years ago when they came for a visit. AJ was so attentive to the tour guide and she remembered everything he said, so this place always puts a smile on our faces because it always makes us remember AJ's comments after the tour. Haunted or not, you can enjoy the outdoor garden. Just look at those crape myrtles! wish mine would bloom like them.
Here, you will see the back side of the house.

Side of the house.

The restaurant is the building on the left.
I think the oak trees look kinda creepy with lots of Spanish moss hanging on them.
This is the front of the house.
Thank you, Susan, for sponsoring another Outdoor Wed. and thank you all for coming!
