Yesterday was a beautiful day in New Orleans. Since the Saints did not play yesterday I was able to talk my husband into doing the gardens of the Vieux Carre walking tour. We are temporarily living in the french quarter and often go for walks. I am always trying to look down alleyways to see what secret gardens are in the courtyards of these old and beautiful homes. So when I read about this tour I knew I had to go. It was such fun to see these gardens. They were all beautiful, unique and little hidden treasures. They turned out to be even better than I imagined.
