Welcome Spring & Middleton Place


with the arrival of Spring I thought you would love to know a little (or a lot)  about a garden.

situated on 65 of the most beautifully landscaped acres in the USA,
Middleton Place is near Charleston, South Carolina.

the gardens, which Henry Middleton envisioned & began to create in 1741,
reflect the grand classic style of that period in England & Europe.

The property has miraculously remained under the same family 
stewardship for some 320 years,
 and today, successfully preserves history for visitors to enjoy.
for me, being considered a Southerner,
places like this are so important to our history & heritage.

wouldn't it be wonderful to visit this historical landmark?
well, perhaps when the Charleston Home Tour begins in the Fall.

please click here to be taken to their home page
where you will find all the information on this
still-alive living, breathing estate.

I've never visited Charleston. I think it would be so much fun to go and spend time in the antique shops and on a house tour. It's on my "some day" list...
