Living in the Ozarks

 

Back Yard Beauty

Back Yard Beauty

Moving day is fast approaching, which means I have less time to devote to blogging and other writer pursuits, so thought this morning I’d share a few photos for readers who are not privileged enough to live in our beautiful Ozarks.

Don’t take offense. I do admit there are other lovely places to live in our beautiful country, but thought you might like to take a few minutes to enjoy a short vacation in my back yard.

The first photo is of our Eastern Magnolia, often referred to as a tulip tree in all its glory this

To find this old cabin, one must drive through our small mountain village and start up West Mountain. It sits back off the road a ways and is an original 1800s log cabin.

Lastly, this magnificent Bradford pear that was on the place when we bought it over 40 years ago. Though damaged a few years back by the skirts of a tornado, it continues to bloom like this every spring, even the cold ones like we’ve experienced this year.

We could continue, but I’ll have to save more of the tour for next week as our day to vacate our home of 41 years looms closer and closer. I’ll try to share some photos of the new abode, a small rock house nearby as we move into it.

Meanwhile, you might want to check out two new additions to my library of Western Historical romance offerings. Montana Promises is now available in audio. The Legend of the Rose, a Novella, is available on my Kindle page. Happy reading and listening.
