Nanih Waiya Farm

We have a little place in Neshoba County, outside Philadelphia, about a mile from the Nanih Waiya Indian mound and it was christened Nanih Waiya Farm a few years back.  The house, built in 1898, is Mr. Doctor’s mother’s home place.

I don’t think I have brought you here before so welcome and come on in…

    This home is so similar to and brought back so many memories of my great-grandmother’s place in Alamucha, MS outside Toomsuba and Kewanee near Meridian. (How ’bout THOSE names!) The garden gate is identical and I screamed (Mr. CooCoo, MY husband, came running saying “what’s wrong?”) when I saw it! Oh, this one (blog) filled my heart to overflowing. Even looked up SECRET GARDENS by Judy Collins on iTunes and played it while perusing. This is SUCH a beautiful place and you gave us a perfect glimpse with which to imagine all the life lived here. I’m so happy it’s still in the family, so many more “love memories” can be made here. (Has it been published? – If not, it certainly should be.) Just beautiful. I think I’m going to paint the pix of the bright yellow-orange zinnias and the fence. Love it!

      So glad it brought back fond memories for you. Let me know if you paint the zinnias – I would love to see your painting. As always, I so appreciate your reading along with me and taking the time to let me know when something touches you!

        I WILL let you see the zinnia painting for sure. Reading your incredible blog is such a pleasure and a part of my day I look forward to with delight. 🙂
