Middleton Place, along the Ashley river northwest of Charleston, South Carolina, is a favorite place for me to visit. I have graciously been given permission to enter the ground early in an effort to catch morning light as it first touches the magnificent 17th century gardens. The live oaks, the butterfly terraces, and the unequalled camellia alleés all offer a nuanced view of the Old South.
