Rural Beauty

I was brought up in the suburbs of
North Atlanta and lived the life of a city girl!

But as fate would have it,
I have raised my family in the mountains  
of rural North Georgia.

There are some conveniences that
have been sacrificed, 
but the charm and beauty 
of the area is well worth it!

I went for a drive this evening,
and just around the corner from my home,
I came upon a beautiful scene at sunset!

Sunset Over the Mountains

New Friend!

 Fall is here, temperatures are finally chilly,
and the corn field is returning to the earth~

but not before providing a home for dainty beauties
 and snacks for the herds of deer ~


What once was golden silk, 
has now aged to perfection ~

  Mother Nature's perfect gift wrap ~

& Lace ~

~ paired with industrial rust and wire.

A place called home, a garden, a farm, 
 beauty I drive by, often times unaware!

Welcome to my world!

Y'all come back and sit a spell.
Live your AUTHENTIC life ~ Be the REAL you!

Oh Martha - this is just simply wonderful!
Love all images! So real and authentic, nature at its best!
Have not seen anything better!

You even have 'inserted' a lovely cow, a simple fence, letter boxes (?), and the ripe corn and all the wild flowers....what else can I say!
Real rural beauty!

Oh my goodness... between the beautiful photos and the music, I have goosebumps all over! This reminds me that even though I have a busy weekend ahead, I need to take the time if it's not raining, and get out and take photos.

Thanks, Martha!
