These wildflowers we gathered our first day back in Tennessee.
Aren't they beautiful?
Jordan and I have been busy this Spring planning our future home.
It was so nice to be able to see the progress in person, instead of just talking about it over the phone.
He is going to build us a cozy log house, in the style of the 19th century.
We are planning to live semi-off the grid, with minimal electricity and "modern inconviences". :) I am so excited - I've always dreamed of living a more old-fashioned lifestyle.
The wild cherries were my favorite. Just the right mixture of dark bittersweet tartness.
Though sometimes they were rather difficult to obtain....
And then, of course, the blackberries.
One morning we all took buckets and tramped through an enormous patch of blackberry brambles, getting very scratched and hot by the time we were through, but emerging with about a gallon and half of delicous berries. These later transformed into three large, juicy cobblers for the working day.
More Tennessee posts coming soon....
