Text Appearing Before Image:
ain in October and until the timeof light frost, which comes in December. The interiorof the larger garden at Green Court, surrounded with itssplendid outer court, is more spacious than the glimpsethrough the gateway would suggest. The charm of thisenclosure, like Southern hospitality, is a combination ofbountifulness and grateful simplicity. Green Court de-serves to stand as a representative garden of its State. With an almost similar chmate the adjoining Stateof Alabama has its gardens also, but, unfortunately, pho-tographs are not now available. Palms of every description are the characteristic plantsof Florida. The State is generally flat and open, but inthe north the country is more wooded, often wild andswampy, with picturesque winding little rivers meander-ing to the coasts.
