We recently visited Bayou Bend gardens and mansion which was owned by Ima Hogg, a philanthropist, patron and collector of the arts.
Ms. Hogg also collected plants. The gardens are filled with azaleas, camellias, magnolias and other spring blooming plants.
Our winter has been so warm that many of the flowers have opened.
The garden’s Azalea Trail is nearly a month away.
None the less, it was an absolutely perfect day on the Bayou.
