Hello, Georgia.

Can you feel the muggy air?

Can you hear the crickets?

Can you smell bacon and grits?

Hello, Georgia.

And for you folks who don't know what this picture is...
These are gourds made into bird houses.

I stumbled upon this photo tonight and I fell in love with a rush of memories. It's the first thing you see when you walk out the front door and look across the road at the farm.

Want one?

Leave a comment and enter to win one for you and one for a friend. AND, I'll send you some REAL Georgia cotton fresh off the field 'cuz I got the cotton hook up in the South. (oh ya... and because my hubby brought some back for me:)

This is what the cotton looks like...


and if you want this picture instead, that's fine too!

I have never had any real cotton. Like the REAL stuff. Unless you count cotton balls! :) I don't even think I've seen a cotton field in person. I need to get back there one of these days....

I just took a big breath and closed my eyes and had a taste of Georgia for a minute!! We miss it, too.

I may be revealing something about myself here, but I have no idea what that is a picture of. I guess it's because I've never been to the South? So...what is it?
Oh, and I would love some real, fresh cotton. :) I wouldn't know what to do with it, but I'm sure you could educate me.

Do you know the song "Georgia Girl" by -- Collective Soul, maybe? It's one of my favorite cool-down songs for my runs, and it always makes me think of you (even though I have no idea why)!
And I'm with others here -- what would you do with cotton? Are those decorations in the pic or do they serve some purpose? I think you need to say a little MORE!
