Nottoway Plantation in bloom

When putting together my bucket list for New Orleans, I was told I had to add a plantation tour by many people.  What could I do – I had to go!  I was not disappointed – the plantation was fascinating.  So much history behind the walls of the mansion.  If you go – I highly recommend spending the night to soak it all in and have time to really appreciate all that the plantation has on offer.  I wrote about stepping into old world charm at the Nottoway Plantation.  I am sure you will agree – it is worth the drive to see these magnificent homes!

While I was there – the gardens were ablaze with colour – it was a sight to enjoy!  Love how the vibrant flowers contrast with the white mansion.

The trees were loaded with blooms.

A lovely spot to stop and reflect.

A place to rest

Love the vibrant colours.  The property was stunning.  Had a lot of fun photographing the flowers – just screaming of spring!
