Jackson, Mississippi

Rosemary Kavanagh O'Carroll of Farmington submitted this photo, taken of yellow roses in author Eudora Welty's garden in Jackson, Mississippi. She writes, "My husband and I were on our way to a family wedding in Mobile, Alabama and flew into Jackson, MS. We stayed around the corner from Eudora Welty's house which was just opened to the public a few years ago. She was and is a famous short story writer about the poor people in the south, black and white. Her garden was beautiful, and she and her mother planted all of the roses and flowers that are still there, so we could feel her soul."
