Yesterday I made the long drive from my home in Ohio to my parent's home in northern Georgia. The drive is long and I have made it many many times over the past fifteen years. By the time I am finished with the nine hour trip, I am wiped out. Over the years, I have learned that a sure fired way to recharge my batteries is to spend some time in their back yard my first morning there.
Combine formal lawn and walk ways with amazing blooms and the occasional whimsey and you can begin to get an understanding of this magical place.
Over the next week or so, we will spend more time exploring their home and documenting my visit. Together, my parents have built a paradise around themselves and I think you will like seeing a glimpse of their home.
