Thank you for this beautiful review! The Garden District is impressive in any weather, but on a beautiful day it is simply amazing. I am so glad you enjoyed your walk with James through the live oaks, antebellum mansions, and lush lawns. He knows all about that gracious neighborhood, and all about the cemetery, too. See you next time! Libby
