Lovely little garden walk you can attend anytime without cost (I think). Viewed the house, too, which was lovely. The gardens are peaceful and enjoyed imagining Eudora with her friends enjoying the gardens and "little house".

Normally this is closed on Sunday, but I arrived when there were having an event so it was opened. The garden has been maintained as Eudora had it in her time. It isn't that large, but pretty.

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.

The tour includes the house and garden. They have very cool bookmarks in the gift store. Our guide was well informed and pleasant

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.
