October is the nothing is blooming month. Everything is green but nothing is blooming. Gardens very well kept clean and trimmed...but off season for literally anything that could bloom. The volunteers were not exactly enthralling in the story of the plantation. Grounds look exactly like...More

Lovely grounds, gardens, and field tour was nice. Loved the little restaurant too. Only disappointment was the main house is gone--as in, in rubbles.
