My sisters posted some pictures from the farm on Facebook and I just had to share them. When our friends find out we are building a little farm house they always ask, "Where is it ?" So far Chatsworth, Georgia has not made it to the top ten places to live! And hey our farm is really in Eton, Georgia and to further identify it, the Cool Springs Community. Marvin and I have decided we will be fortunate if the farm house is done by next Christmas!! However, my cousin, Steve, is home from his hunting trip so we hope the road to the property will be a reality soon.
Leta took these two photos the other day and I love the way the shadows play over the fall colors.
Our little place will be off to the far left of this piece of land.
The majestic Fort Mountain was in view every day of my growing up on the farm but as with most things you see every day, it becomes common place. This view is from my mother's front yard. My daddy's orchard and grape vines are in the foreground.
Sister, Kristi, posted these....
The side yard at my mother's house.
Grassy Mountain in the background. Bruce's cattle in the foreground.
I believe this is on top of the hill where Kristi lives. When the leaves fall off the trees she will be able to look down and see our farm house.
The colors of fall are always a delight. I will hate to see the leaves fall off the trees but cold weather is coming! I was reminded of that as I took my walk this morning in the 45 degree temperature. And do not forget to FALL BACK this weekend. Here in NoAla we are at the very edge of the central time zone so with the time change it starts to get dark at 4:30 in the afternoon. My afternoon ritual of closing the plantation shutters and turning on lamps will resume. I also have to remember to turn the garage light on for Marvin so he does not return to a dark home. With Halloween over, we will have Thanksgiving to look forward to and I have to admit it is one of my favorite holidays. When eating and being thankful is the main focus of a holiday I am all for it!!
