outside the "baccy" barn (tobacco for you who are familiar with this particular southern entity)
A cartful of barrels outside the baccy barn
gourds drying- these were commonly split open and used as (rather large) ladles/spoons
love me wagon wheel
the original family farm house
the old garden tool shed-very important place on the farm...
The flowers here don't know that its not quite spring yet....camellias were everywhere...
and these tiny daffodils (I am sure they have a real name, but Ms Green fingers here does not know what that would be)
More camellia bushes lead to the back of the farmhouse...
what southern home would be complete without spanish moss draped trees?
the old wash tub and watering can- poised and ready to be put to work
a great use for an old wheel- to wrap the modern day hose around...
check out the ripples in the glass....love it
the welcome from the front porch
inside the old farmhouse...while you are not allowed to the upstairs area...the stairs are super steep-you would have to a steady gait to make it up there in a hurry!
the parlor- which also had a piano, but it was touch to get it into the shot...Love the light!
another of the downstairs bedroom...check out the shoes and the chamber pot!!
the bath tub in the master in front the fireplace..
the baby's crib in the master
inside plumbing in those days
the laundry room!!!
the smoke house...
the farm could not function without the army of volunteers who gladly give their time
looking up at the front of the farmhouse....check out the bird cage...
what a great place...would love to go back again and get some more information-hope you enjoyed it!
this trip back in time....
