Come September, sweltering days marked by lively color slowly surrender to fall’s lovely touch, and a time of sweet reprieve ushers in a refreshing air and a dazzling backdrop. At Southern Lady, we relish the delights of this stunning transition, and this issue is filled with them—from floral arrangements brimming with enchanting earth tones to radiant settings and charming interiors. Savor the season’s robust bounty in a harvest-inspired alfresco supper, a dinner for two with Italian flair, and a roundup of classic biscuits with flavorful spins. Escape to the next destination in our Historic Landmarks series, Louisville, Kentucky’s storied Locust Grove, as well as a distinctive New Orleans garden and other scenic stops around our region where Southern women have reaped unique beauty through pursuing their passions. Wherever it finds you, enjoy a fabulous fall rich in the blessings of the season!
