Houmas House Plantation and  Gardens 
August 2018
Farewell to Summer

With Summer coming to an end I start to get excited about cooler days, the Fall gardens and all the festivities about to happen here.  The past few months I have had so much fun seeing all the kids visiting Houmas House and playing fetch with me.  And I love sharing my colorful gardens with the garden enthusiast.  It's been a fun summer all around!
If you didn't get to visit this summer, our gardens are still flourishing and will be in full bloom for a couple more months.  It's not until November the color renewal process will begin and 50,000 new plants will blanket the entire 38 acres. It's truly an amazing transformation!
Thank you to all who visited me this summer.  I hope you will return again soon.

Much Love,

Princess Maggie

What If You Followed a Raindrop Down the Mississippi River?
Ever wonder how long it takes a drop of water to travel the entire distance of the Mississippi River?  One journalist researched just that and discovered it takes approximately 90 days starting in the headwaters in Minnesota and ending in the Gulf of Mexico. She set out to follow the long and winding Mississippi River and see what she could discover along the way.   This piece was written several years ago, but the sights, sounds and experiences she encountered are all still here.  Enjoy this story about Gayle Harper's 90 day adventure.
