Last year year, I founded the Natchez International Crepe Myrtle Festival because the extraordinary Crepe Myrtle Blooms of Natchez are worth celebrating! While there’s not a festival with speakers this year, our Committee members have created a perfect experience to Celebrate the Blooms!
In coming days, we will proudly offer three self-guided tours to celebrate the blooms. These FREE tours have been developed by Crepe Myrtle Historian and Committee member, Elaine Gemmell:
Trees & Counting!
self-guided bloom tours
So here's a summer sightseeing trip idea: take in some of the loveliness and deliciousness that Natchez offers and experience the city in a low contact manner!
Rita Tebbetts tells us the trees are still moving towards peak season and that the blooms should be pretty possibly even into August!

Sara & Paul Costello experience Maison Chenal
Just this weekend, writer & interior decorator Sara Ruffin Costello and her husband and photographer Paul Costello visited my Maison Chenal listing. It was an exquisite outing as so much was in full bloom.
The parterre gardens and ancient oaks add much to the 18th century French Creole setting. See my listing here!
Paul generously agreed to share his photos! You might also enjoy
Sara's and Paul's instagram posts as their friends excitedly chimed in desirous of purchasing the estate, with lots of entertaining ideas to celebrate together.
I've received a few property queries since. The tranquil setting inspires!
