Grimmwood at Foothills Farm

 If I had some fancy smancy personalized stationery, Grimmwood at Foothills Farm would be at the top. 

Leta took this gorgeous photo and some of you have already seen it on Facebook but I am sharing it here.

I may have a canvas made of this one....I just love it.

The sign on the Old CCC Camp Road  letting people know that they have reached The Farm. Bruce and Leta always decorate the sign for the season. They even decorate our gate to Grimmwood. We look forward to seeing what they have come up with! 

Spring has sprung on the Farm, daffodils, hyacinths, Bradford Pears and Batchelor Buttons are to be seen. When I was a little girl we had a Lilac bush in the back yard that smelled so good in the spring. Sadly it was cut down to make room for  a shed. But it lives on in my memories. 

I always said when I left Chatsworth to get married, I would never come back there to live. Well I keep half my promise. We so enjoy our little house there. I especially enjoy the summer evenings on the porch with Kristi, Leta, Laura, Bruce and Marvin. We sit out there until the sun goes down. Brings back more memories of my childhood when porch sitting was a regular part of the day. 

Oh and Happy St Patricks Day!! Top of the Morning to Ya!

Oh Arlene! I love the picture you shared. I think you should have note cards created from it along with the canvas. A reminder of God's beauty at the Farm. For some reason, I am looking forward to some porch sitting this year. Enjoy your day and Happy St. Patrick's Day to you!

HSPD! I know what you mean about evenings on the porch. Some of my most wonderful memories are family sitting on the front porch of my grandparents and kids playing under the big pecan tree. It is funny how you remember all the flowers and trees too. Sweet memories and no, I wouldn't want to live there either, but I simply must go there. I went yesterday and couldn't get over how much I had missed in a year.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day my friend. The picture of Grimwood, is absolutely stunning and needs to be framed and hanging up it is stunning. Thank you so much for sharing your Spring pictures and memories. Many blessings to you and yours.

What a lovely little farm you have there, Arlene. I do enjoy a nice sit and chat on a front porch :) Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Beautiful photo....agree, you should do something special with it. What a lovely place of respite.

That photo is so beautiful, you need to have it printed!
I'm so glad you are having such happy times there. It always looks wonderful.
I love porch sitting and am looking forward to doing just that on our new porch. Too cold here right now though.

Arlene, Yes, get that gorgeous photo printed. Have you see photos printed on metal? It really looks so nice done that way and you don't even need to frame it. What a special place you have to go to and enjoy nature.
