These young ladies were enjoy a light lunch too.
This is the view we had from our table.
After a lunch of chicken salad and fresh lemonade, we headed down the grand staircase at the back of the home to the formal gardens.
This small fountain is in the center of two staircases
coming down from the porch.
Then we followed this sidewalk down to the garden level.
Looking back at the house from the gardens. See what I mean - it is much more elegant than the front of the home.
Lee at the level of the gardens
There are gardens on either side of the home.
This row of trees extends between both gardens
This is a more formal garden
The rest of the pictures are self-explanatory. It was just a gorgeous place to spend the afternoon!
