Outdoor Wednesday

Time again for "Outdoor Wednesday" hosted by Susan @ A Southern Daydreamer" http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/. Because it has been so hot here lately, with heat index readings in the triple digits, I have not been going outside any more than I have to. So decided to dig into my photos for pictures of the outdoors. As some of you know, I did a post on March 28th about the Carnton Plantation, Franklin, TN http://dabofthisandthat.blogspot.com/2009/03/carnton-plantation-franklin-tn.html These are some of the pictures I took last Fall of the Military Cemetary.

This picture is of the formal gardens next to the house. To the left, you can see white tents set up where special events such as weddings, receptions, etc., are held.

Hope you enjoyed this little tour. I had hoped to go back to Franklin this Spring, but to many other things got in the way - maybe this Fall.

If you have not already, go over to see what she and the other participants have to share. Thank you Susan for hosting "Outdoor Wednesday".

Hope everyone is having a great week.

Glenda, I'm very familiar with the Carnton. My daughter got married there last year. It is truly a beautiful place and your post brought back fond memories!

Walking in a cemetery park I'd probably do - especially like this one and knowing how those soldiers risked their lives for one's country but definitely not at night :-)

Happy Outdoor Wednesday!

My dear man would LOVE to have been with y'all on this tour....he's a Civil War Buff. I'll have to get him in here with me so he can view the photos too.

My Wordful/Outdoor Wednesday is all about something that was 'taken from our yard'. But at our request. Happy Wednesday to you.

I have no idea why except that I appreciate history, but I love to visit old cemetaries. We have several here in Marietta, GA due to the Civil War and it's always just amazing to see the memorials and burial grounds. Thank you for the tour,your photos were very nice.

It's so hot here too, we all have sun poisoning from swimming and we were wearing sunscreen too.

Love the formal garden. The shrubs are so pretty and I love the white fence.
Luckily we are getting a break in the heat this week, but it has been a heat index of over 100 all last week.
Try to stay cool and thanks for taking us on this trip, have a great OW!

So sorry about your horrible heat. I'm not a good heat person so I really, really sympathize! This is the first time I've been to your blog and your pictures are so pretty! I'll definitely be back!

Thanks for stopping by on Outdoor Wednesday!

Hi Glenda,
I'd love to live in Franklin -- so much history! Did you know that Civil War history is the number one reason tourists from other countries visit Tennessee? I would have assumed it was to visit Music City, Graceland, Beale Street, etc.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving the nice comment.
Hope your week goes well.

Warm regards,
Bill
