Melrose, Natchez, Mississippi









i had to do a bit of lighting up there on the back of the home there in this last shot. it was getting later in the evening. they were working away on this beauty. lots of hammering & pounding away!! very loud but a fun tour all the same. this home is part of the National Park Service. while we were there, there was tons of mosquitoes flying around. here i am trying to listen to the park ranger talk & the silly boogers are flying around my ears. ha. ha!! fun times in Natchez. these plantation homes are a got to see.

tomorrow please stop in to see the gardens of "Melrose" (for more info. see here). you will so enjoy!
thanks, for stopping by. i enjoy your notes. have a great day! ( :

Nice photos Beth, these old Manor homes are so beautiful and it is good to see that some of them are being restored and kept for prosperity.

I'd love to see the house, but not badly enough to endure the mosquitoes. I enjoyed your mosquito-free photos, though.

I love to tour old homes but the mosquitoes would drive me nuts. I can't wait to see the gardens. Enjoy the day.

Beautiful homes! I'm glad they have been kept up even though it must cost a fortune to do so.

It's a beautiful home and nice that they are trying to keep them up. One good thing about winter is that there are no mosquitoes or other little biters. :)
