Perfect spot, wondrously wonderful and happy visit
- When my sisters and I finally made our way up to the top of the mountain where our aunt lives in Franklin, North Carolina, she was leaning on this railing, waving to us. Our late uncle designed this beautiful home and this year she decided to leave Florida and stay here through the hot weather months. Her dog Cotton favors that spot, too, and likes to lie on that mat.
- She wanted to take us to visit her brother and sister-in-law's garden in nearby Cashiers, NC. This is just a small section of this wondrously wonderful spot.
- Can you see the butterflies? Click to enlarge if you can. They were swirling around in droves, as if they couldn't decide which spot to settle on next, since it's all so wonderful.
- This playhouse is named after Pippi Longstocking's house "Villa Villekulla" and features framed artwork from each of the grandchildren. Grandchildren from Florida arrived to visit before we left and I mentioned to the little girl that I liked her playhouse. Her eyes widened, "I forgot about that!" Her grandparents are so delightful and welcoming - it was clear that she and her brother were in for a happy visit.
