DJ Wilson's blog about nature, gardening, and life in Southern Appalachia
Sweet! Reminds me of kinder and gentler times and a time I’d like to go back to.
Ah, home sweet home! We are lucky to spot such treasures here in Georgia as well as when I am back home in Tennessee. I hope that such places will remain for many more years to come so the next generation can learn from our past….
Makes you want to crawl right into the photo and sit on the porch. Hi, DJ! I hope you’re having a good summer. ~ Daricia
Tina, it does harken back to a way of life that is slipping away. Sweet is the right word for it.
Skeeter, this home place is just outside Greenville, Tennessee. There’s a little country store nearby.The whole setting reminded me of something straight out of a novel set in the old south. It would be fun to travel that road with you and Tina.
Hi Daricia. I’ve been thinking about you, hoping you got to spend time with your son in SF. Yes that porch was very appealing. I want one just like it, don’t you? I’ll take an old truck like that one too!
Beautiful! I live halfway between DC and the wine country/farmland of VA and we always choose a country drive whenever possible. It’s wonderful to know places like these still exist.
Tammy, you live in such a beautiful part of the country. I used to live near DC and traveled down those Virginia roads a good bit. I’ll be thinking about you and your family as you go forward with upcoming changes. –DJ
The photo evokes Melonie Cannon’s “Tennessee Roads,” the song Channel 10 in Knoxville used in their station commercials for several years.
Jim, I’ve seen that promotional piece so many times — still thought it was on tv, in fact. They (crew and Ms. Cannon) did a great job capturing the beauty of rural Tennessee.
Wonderful! What a great porch, like Daricia said, makes you want to sit a spell.
