Thanks for the Review! Posted on zillow.com * * * * * Peter introduced my husband and I to a gorgeous property for sale on Marais Street, showed us around, and provided every resource we needed as we considered it. Not only was he so very knowledgable about the area, the particular block, the home's architecture and historic details, etcetera — his charisma, warmth and approachability led to us meeting several of the neighbors during our tour, who were generous and helpful.
We subscribe to Peter's real estate newsletter full of breathtaking historic homes throughout the region and it's a real treat. ~Alexadra

CANEMOUNT PHOTOLOGUE: Exploring Claiborne County - Southern Most Tip of MS Delta*
Canemount is a Sporting Paradise
Forty acres of fenced mature landscaping are lovely for walks. There's a Skeet Shooting course. The surrounding 3,500 acre Canemount Wildlife Management Area has a long history of trophy deer management.
Back onsite. there's a restaurant awaiting
a return for retreats, meetings, or full business.

A Ghost Town Along The Mississippi
Once the busiest port along the Mississippi river between
New Orleans & St. Louis, you'll now find the ruins and remains of Rodney.
Rodney Baptist Church
dates from 1850.
Due to repeated floods, it's in
a precarious state.
Across the street and
slightly higher on a hill,
Rodney Presbyterian Church
Dating from 1832, with a Union canon ball lodged above the top middle window and a security camera placed in the lower middle window, Rodney Presbyterian stands guarded. While preservationists have been at work, more support is needed to stabilize the structure.
We also learned Grant's amphibious
landing tactics informed WWII's D-Day landing.

The nearby un-leveed Mississippi River and about boundaries
*Yes, I knew when I said we were exploring the southern-most tip of the delta, I was entering murky waters:
as geographical boundaries, of where the "Delta" starts & stops, are highly contested!
And to focus on that definition is tertiary to the purpose of this foray: to experience the history-steeped area surrounding Canemount, AND . . .
the BEST fried chicken in Mississippi!

I AM EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE! The LSU Museum of Art in Baton Rouge has officially contracted me to offer for sale four extraordinary & fine period rooms.
These rooms have been properly deaccessioned from their collection several years ago. They have been removed from their Memorial Tower location, each element individually crated and stored at an LSU facility in Baton Rouge.

NATCHEZ PHOTOLOGUE! It was a Fig Cake Kind of Welcome
A FEW HIGHLIGHTS!
PORCH SIPPING AT DUNLEITH
I rounded up a group of friends to visit Natchez: to experience some of the beauty and deliciousness the town offers during peak Crepe Myrtle bloom season. We were greeted warmly by Natchez friends!
Dunleith Historic Inn
along with its Castle Restaurant & Pub are back open and the dining was stellar.
Ricky Woolfolk created a special
Crepe Myrtle Themed Cocktail
and it's delicious!
Saturday's Explorations Included:
A Historic City Cemetery
Guided Walking Tour
(on grounds established in 1822),
Seeing Master Gardener Friends at the Natchez Farmers Market.
The produce, baked goods and plants are fantastic!
We also love its new location along the river.
We toured Choctaw Hall, built around 1836. It's a phenomenal property, and it's a highly recommended bed & breakfast.
Then, we enjoyed a delightful boozy brunch at the new Little Easy Cafe (we loved it so much we went back Sunday morning!)
While I showed a client a few homes downtown, our group enjoyed taking the Bloom Drive* & and engaging in a Sip & See Tour* of the Downtown area.
* Three self-guided Natchez Bloom tours are available - read on past story for details.
Art by Esther Carpenter
We reconvened at Beau DesHotel's new Arts District Studio for the Flora & Fauna Show & visited with the talented artists!
Afterwards we enjoyed viewing the grounds at Monmouth Historic Inn and their celebrated bar for pre-dinner drinks. I want to return to see this wisteria-covered arbor in bloom. What lovely gardens!
Monmouth Historic Inn also has a fine dining restaurant.
We enjoyed dinner at the Kitchen Bistro Saturday evening.
On Sunday, we were treated to a walking tour of the oldest part of the downtown - originally settled by the Spanish. A passing horse drawn carriage sets the mood.
Though a torrential rain came down during part of the walk led by my friend and historian Jefferson Mansell, we loved the experience. The architecture, blooms and camaraderie were beyond compare.
After the walk, Jeff invited us back to his house for coffee and treats. It was a wonderful time learning more about the history of Natchez. The experience was further heightened by our our Crepe Myrtle Archivist & Historian, and retired Master Gardener, Elaine Gemmell's homemade Fig Cake!
While your Natchez stay might not include Elaine's divine fig creation, you can always take solace, and magnificently so, in the Milk Punch served at the Little Easy Cafe! And about Milk Punch, we like ours with a shot of espresso!
Before leaving Natchez, we took another turn about the historic downtown area overlooking the majestic River and paid respects to the Champion Crepe Myrtle at Bontura.
WE ❤️ NATCHEZ! There's so much more to discover...
I wish we had stayed longer. We'll return soon with friends!
PUT A JULY NATCHEZ VISIT ON YOUR CALENDAR NOW!
●●●●● THE BACKGROUND: Why I Founded the Natchez International Crepe Myrtle Festival
I'm a longtime fan of the architecture and genuine hospitality Natchez offers. But in July of 2018, I was completely caught off-guard. I was stunned by the intense array of blooms! So I asked around to understand how this happened, and a planned effort came clear. In addition to the ongoing commitment of its citizenry, Sallie Ballard, the architect of 2000 for 2000, funded planting of well over 2000 crepe myrtles for the millennium! (SEE MORE ON MY BLOG)
"When Peter Patout needs a break from the bustle of his home in New Orleans’ French Quarter, he returns to his Patoutville roots. There, nestled among fields of cane that have fueled the family’s sugar business for nearly two centuries, sits a house built in 1925 by Patout’s grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Ory Patout."
A Cocktail Masterpiece Awaits Your Enjoyment A favorite from last summer
Now this is a welcome drink! Photo by Barbee Ponder
So fancifully presented! Oh, how I would loved to have served this fabulous cocktail to my dear friend Julia Reed. I enjoyed it when visiting sweet friends Barbee and his wife Ashley Ponder last summer.
DIRTY SUGAR by Barbee Ponder This libational masterpiece I made to welcome Peter and Lee Anne
to Covington for a weekend classical tour. She’s best prepared midday to be enjoyed that evening.
