TOURISM AND BEAUTY!
Monmouth’s owner, Nancy Reuther, was one of several people honored on May 6, 2014 by the City of Natchez’ Tourism Council with a Tourism Award. Nancy was honored for her time, energy, effort and financial investments at Monmouth, continually striving to bring it to new heights in the hospitality industry, while remaining true to that which is uniquely “Monmouth.” If you haven’t been to Monmouth lately – you simply haven’t been to Monmouth! Congratulations, Nancy!
There’s so much to celebrate this month! Monmouth’s gardens are filled with nature’s beauty in its flora as well as that of its creatures. Monday I noticed the most beautiful cardinal I’d ever seen – it was the most vibrant crimson. Yesterday, I looked up and saw one of the largest magnolias I’d ever seen - blooming on the magnolia tree on our front lawn. Families of squirrels run all over the grounds, up and down and in and out of the trees; various species of birds sing their sweet melodies throughout the day and into the evening – each with their own distinct sound – yet they come together in perfect harmony. This morning, I observed Jemima Puddleduck - and her 5 companions - waddling across the pathways in the drizzle, stopping at every puddle they came across to take a drink and shake their feathers. What a joyful sight! Peaceful serenity surrounds you wherever you roam; it truly is a little slice of paradise here. It’s so hard to believe that simply turning into the drive here at Monmouth opens up an entirely new world – one where you can leave your cares behind, breathe deeply of Mother Nature’s beauty and yet continue to keep the modern conveniences we’ve become so accustomed to – like air-conditioning!
Come experience the joy found at Monmouth for yourself.
