I was here entirely by accident! Drove to see the home on a recent trip and they were having an event. Gardens and house were open. In the spring the flowers are all in bloom. It is an informal garden with lots of camelias and azeleas. What makes it special is the history behind this garden, and Eudora Welty (who... More

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.

I got to experience the beauty and aroma that the author experienced...Magnolias, rose, and herbs were growing. Also inspected the playhouse her brothers used to use as a club..Should be made part of the tour

It is a beautifully designed and crafted garden, marvelously restored to 1940s period when the writer's mother "had things pretty much the way she wanted them." I have visited many more impressive home gardens, but the Welty readers will all attest to the impact of familiarity when you are surrounded by the plants of her books and the garden-prose she...

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.

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.
