If you’re one of my
millions hundreds couple of dozen regular readers, you know how special Bacon’s Castle is to me. If you’re new to my blog, this link will give you a little info.
I’ve taken many pictures of that old house – and until this week, I thought the prettiest ones were those I had taken in the fall when the leaves were changing colors.
But Monday, we had a surprise snowstorm, and Motor Man drove me around the countryside to take pictures. He’s such a good husband.
It was snowing when we arrived at “the Castle”.
And I knew immediately that these were going to be my new favorite pictures of that wonderful old place.
I can just imagine days of old with a horse and buggy driving down the lane. And my grandma would have come to the door and said: “y’all get down and come in”. My grandma used that phrase even into the 1960’s when anyone stopped by to visit her. I guess I was a teenager before I realized that her comment referred to the days of horse and buggies or wagons when a visitor actually had to alight from something in order to come in the house.
What is it about snow that transports us back to another time?
I’m not sure. But I do know that Bacon’s Castle was never more beautiful than it was during this recent snowfall.
