Rosedown Plantation

It's been quite a while since I've posted in Good Fences.  I had the good fortune of visiting Rosedown Plantation in St. Francisville, Louisiana last weekend and captured some photos worthy of sharing. The plantation encompasses 374 acres and is one of the most intact, documented examples of a domestic plantation complex in the South.  

The entrance road to the visitors center is lined with a white fence and live oaks
Live oaks also line the drive to the plantation house
A truly classic southern plantation
I love the beautiful gate that decorates the old entrance to the property
A grand centerpiece
Trails wind through serene, shady gardens.
The azaleas were in full bloom in shades of pink and purple
The Spring Pilgrimage attracted lots of visitors to the area that weekend
This area is the summer garden and will be exploding with colorful blooms soon
Spring blossoms are scattered throughout the plantation grounds
Aren't these yellow blooms pretty?
I particularly loved the color variations of these blooms
A variety of old, worn statues stand along the entrance path to the plantation home 

I hope you enjoyed these photos from the Rosedown Plantation.  It's a lovely place to visit if you're ever in the St. Francisville, LA area.  Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!
