In this beautiful Southern yard, of the nearly forgotten but not-so-distant past, I always see a happy, well-fed cat. The house seems to be begging to have its picture made. A very authentic place it is. In a different version of this photograph that I posted on my personal Facebook page, I called the image “Southern History” because I think in this yard is as much Southern history as you’ll find in any museum. These are the places from which I learn the most.
